North Miami mayoral candidate “endorsed by Jesus” finishes last
The Jesus claim was made on a campaign flyer posted to Pierre’s Facebook page that reads “Anna Pierre, RN, is endorsed by Jesus Christ” and features a photo of the savior.
Pierre said the endorsement came to her in a revelation while on the campaign trail as she’s been competing against six other candidates.
“I don’t know about if he likes me more, but what I can tell you, I know he loves me very much,” Pierre said. “If it wasn’t for the love of Jesus I wouldn’t be standing here today.”
Smith Joseph was third in the mayoral race with 1,561 votes and 23 percent of the field, followed by Gwendolyn “Gwen” Boyd (555 votes, 8.2 percent), Jean Rodrigue Marcellus (374 votes, 5.5 percent), and Modira Escarment (116 votes, 1.7 percent) in sixth place.
