Template:Infobox politician

Yvonne Arceneaux (born March 1, 1947) is an American politician. She was the longest serving member of the city council of Compton, California. She also served on the board of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

Personal information

On a half-acre lot, she and her husband resided in Richland Farms since 1993. There they raise animals such as ducks, donkeys, and chickens.[1]


Arceneaux was elected to the Compton City Council in 1993. Representing the Third District, she was elected to six times.[2] In the middle of her fifth term, she surpassed Jane D. Robbins as the City Council's longest-serving member. One of her chief accomplishments on the council was her support of a ban on alcohol and tobacco billboards in Compton, the first city to do so in the state of California.[3] Since Arceneaux had dealt with livestock, she is a strong advocate of livestock and the continued struggle to protect it. She has certainly been a witness to several issues that deal with livestock. Issues such as:

  • Overcrowding of livestock
  • Illegal subdivision of property
  • Abusive behavior afforded by the current zoning [1]

On Tuesday, April 21, 2009, Arceneaux was seated on the board of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.[4]

In December 2015, Arceneaux retired after serving a record 22 years on the Compton City Council.[2]
