Before an audience of 500 last Friday, Compton’s millennial mayor Aja Brown, 35, was sworn into office to serve a second four-year at the city’s helm.
Brown first made history in 2013 when she became Compton’s youngest elected mayor at the age of 31. In June, she captured 62 percent of the vote securing her re-election.
After accepting her oath of office Mayor Brown told those gathered that it’s time to move forward.
“It’s time to move forward,” she said. “Onward. It’s time to finish the work. If it isn’t about progress, it’s petty. Put it aside.”
