Satra Zurita, Candidate for Compton City Treasurer
Vice President, Compton Unified School District Governing Board of Trustees & Local Businesswoman.
The Compton Treasurer’s Office has been plagued by scandal and mismanagement for years. We urgently need new and honest leadership. More than $3.7 million was recently embezzled by a Deputy City Treasurer, and the Treasurer’s Office has failed to implement basic technologies to allow residents to pay water bills with a credit or debit card over the phone.
Satra Zurita is Vice President of the Compton Unified School District Governing Board of Trustees, a local businesswoman and a community leader, who has experience managing complex budgets. Satra helped turn around our school district’s troubled finances. She has the experience, energy and work ethic to do the same thing in the Treasurer’s Office.
As our new City Treasurer, Satra will work to:
-Balance all the books and eliminate wasteful and fraudulent spending.
-Responsibly manage our tax dollars and improve the city’s credit rating.
-Implement customer service-oriented policies at City Hall.
-Enable more online and phone technologies so residents can use debit/credit cards to pay bills.
-Lower fees residents have to pay to use credit or debit cards in person and online.
-Make holdings more profitable by investing city funds in secure high yield accounts.
“As your City Treasurer, I’ll implement commonsense reforms to protect our tax dollars and ensure your money is never embezzled again. I’d be honored to earn your vote.” — Satra Zurita
