Mayor Shirley Washington’s election, based on a campaign slogan of “One Pine Bluff” or “One Pine Bluff Stronger” deserves special note.  This first-time politician won after a run-off against the incumbent and now will be a pivotal figure in Pine Bluff’s 2017 inaugural ceremony.

Mayor Washington, who has a master’s degree in education, spent 38 years as a teacher and administrator in public schools in Jefferson County. She has also been involved in the community for virtually a life time.  Her service includes being President of the Pine Bluff Education Association, a member of the Board of Directors of the Arts and Science Center for Southeast Arkansas, member of the Pine Bluff Beautification Facilities Board, member of the Jefferson County Board of Governors, and a life-time member of the NAACP where she serves on the Education Committee of the Pine Bluff Branch.

Her professional and community accomplishments undoubtedly prepare her well for leadership and the executive branch of local government.  She also has built special insights to many sectors of the community and the varied life experiences of citizens in this one local area.

Come join the ceremonies and welcome the new officials and re-elected ones, too!
