Compton’s first Latino lawmaker finally submits finance forms

Oxford Finance Provides $5.5 Million Revolving Line of Credit to PrimeSource Healthcare Systems, Inc.

Compton’s Latino residents have been trying for decades to get a Latino candidate elected to city office. So it was a joyous moment for some when Galvan won a seat on Compton’s City Council in June. But a few weeks into his term, some are having misgivings about the councilman. Galvan had failed to file any of the required campaign finance disclosures for the primary and runoff elections.

A jury of nine men and three women convicted Braddock on conspiracy and election-law violations related to the scheme by the owners of roll-your-own cigarette stores to keep their business exempt from the states steep tax on manufactured cigarettes. Braddock was the finance director of Donovans 2012 congressional campaign until his arrest at the end of May 2012, when Donovan was considered the front-runner for the Democratic nomination for Congress in the 5th District. A federal grand jury eventually indicted Braddock, Nassi and five others. All but Braddock pleaded guilty, as did an eighth and pivotal figure in the conspiracy, Harry Raymond Soucy, a politically connected union official who coached the smoke-shop owners.
