1. About Pierre Richard Augustin
First of all, I believe that Prince George’s County Maryland is a great place to live and raise a family. I believe that fresh ideas are essentials in politics especially to bring new wealth in Prince George's County.
I am asking for your help to make a difference in Prince George's County. The issues at stake are real and the time for action is now. I stand for making Prince George's County public schools stronger because the high school dropout rate that is above 20% is totally unacceptable. I stand for safer streets because Prince George's County crimes statistics are higher and above the national average for both within the state of Maryland and the United States. I stand for higher paying jobs because for every job created, we are losing 1.1 job from company leaving Prince George's County.
2. Pierre Richard Augustin 's FAMILY
Mr. Pierre Richard AUGUSTIN is married and has four children. Mr. AUGUSTIN resides in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. From 2007, my primary focus was work and family. With three actives boys that played high school footballs and other sports (now in Colleges) and my daughter, a high school student in Upper Marlboro, whose second home is the basketball court, that kept me pretty busy and I enjoyed every moment of it. Fortunately, I was able to accompany my daughter's school basketball trip to Germany. Hopefully, I will not miss many games in 2014.

"Hey mom and dad. I just want to tell you that I really love you guys and I miss you a lot. Thank you for being my #1 fans and always doing your best to provide for me in whatever way possible. God couldn't have blessed me with any better parents.
Without both of you I wouldn't have made it this far. You guys are the best parents ever. I can't say thank you enough for everything you do for me.

Were they here, they would be honored to know you. - Sincerely, Barbara”

Forefathers' Contributions in the United States War of Independence
It is important to note that Pierre Richard Augustin's forefathers, the Chasseurs-Volontaires de Saint-Domingue, consisting of over 500 gens de couleur - free men of color or as free black men volunteers not as slaves, from the Caribbean Island of Hispaniola—fought on the French side under the command of the French Admiral the Comte d'Estaing and General Benjamin Lincoln for the Continental Army.
Pierre Richard Augustin's forefathers shed their blood alongside American colonial troops against the British in the Siege of Savannah, Georgia of September 15th to October 20th 1779.
The picture and writings above are from a monument that was constructed in Franklin Square of Savanah, Georgia, USA 230 years later, on October 11, 2009 to honor the Haitian soldiers who gave their lives in the American war for Independence: one of the most significant foreign contributions to the American Revolutionary War that ultimately led to the creation of the United States of America.
Hispaniola was the site of the first European colonies founded by Christopher Columbus on his voyages in 1492 and 1493. Hispaniola is now made up of two countries, Haiti being the first free black republic in the western hemisphere and the Dominican Republic.
Pierre Richard Augustin shares the same birth town with Jean-Jacques Audubon born in Les Cayes in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (now Haiti) who migrated to the United States and made significant contributions in the United States to the understanding of bird anatomy and behavior through his field notes.
In 1905, the National Audubon Society was incorporated and named in his honor. Its mission "is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds...". Mr. AUGUSTIN proudly stand on the shoulders of his forefathers in his quest of public office to make a positive contribution to our country, the United States of America.
Pierre Richard Augustin was born in August 11, 1967 in Les Cayes. At a young age, his parents fulfilled his dream to attend school in Paris, France due to his desires to follow the footsteps of his forefathers. Then, Mr. AUGUSTIN attended high schools in New York and Massachusetts.
Pierre Richard Augustin had a vision and a desire to help improve the lives of others and to make a difference via public service. Thus, he majored in Political Science at Salem State University, Salem, Massachusetts.
