With three weeks to go before the June 7th runoff election, Compton native Janna Zurita continues to build momentum with the announcement of California State Assemblymember (D-52) Isadore Hall's, endorsement in her bid for Compton City Council's 1st District seat.

"As a current member of the California State Assembly, and past member and Mayor Pro Tem for the city of Compton, I know what is required of our leaders during these truly extraordinary times," said Hall.  "Cities throughout the State of California are facing unprecedented economic hardship.  I am confident that Janna Zurita possesses the qualifications for being that kind of leader and a key player in bringing renewed hope to the citizens of the City of Compton."

Compton residents will return to the polls on June 7 to elect a councilmember.  Janna Zurita, who placed second in April's primary election, is a lifelong resident of the city of Compton and coordinator for the Dickson Senior Meals On Wheels program.

"As a Compton native myself, it is a real honor to have the support of Assemblymember Isadore Hall supporting my campaign for City Council," said Janna Zurita.
