"I want to go on record as endorsing Pierre' Washington for American Canyon’s next Mayor.  Pierre' has worked effectively in his role as City Councilmember and Vice Mayor.  He brings excellent credentials to this position, with his decorated careers in the United States Navy, his 22 years of Law Enforcement, and his leadership role in the Biotech Corporate Security & Safety industry.  Pierre' understands the importance of keeping good relationships with our community leaders, our neighboring cities, our developers, our city staff, and of dealing congenially with the public. He is honest, reliable, fair and willing to work the long hours needed for the position. I believe Pierre' is the person best qualified to be the city of American Canyons ambassador and our next Mayor."

Pierre' Washington has proven to be a strong advocate for local families. He is an experienced public servant with clear vision of where he would like American Canyon to go in the future.  He actually cares, he listens, and he wants to make a difference.
