About Councilmember Isadore Hall, III

Councilman Isadore Hall, III was elected to the Compton City Council on April 15, 2003, as the representative of the Fourth District. The citizens of Compton re-elected him to the position in April 2007. Councilman Hall represents the City of Compton on the Metropolitan Water Board, the Gateway Cities Council of Governments, and the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG).

During his tenure as Councilman, Hall has worked to empower local business owners through the Quarterly Business 2 Business Breakfast Roundtable, an event he created as a way to strengthen the relationships between City administration and local businesses. Quarterly, more than 200 people attend this event, where they are presented the tools to enhance their businesses, access resources to help them compete globally, and network with neighboring companies.

A native of California, Hall has served as Director of the Lynwood Employment and Economic Development Center, as Senior Analyst of Classified Personnel for the Lynwood Unified School District, and as Director of the City of Los Angeles Community Services Department.

In November 2001, Hall was elected to the Compton Unified School District Board of Trustees, where he served two consecutive terms as President. The youngest to hold this position in the history of the Compton Unified School District, Hall championed Measure I, which resulted in $80 million to renovate schools throughout the District. He was also instrumental in securing construction of the first new elementary school built in the City of Compton in 35 years, and successfully restoring the Compton Unified School District to full local control, after 10 years of management by the State of California.
