On August 31, CMTA was joined by members of the Legislature, former colleagues and staff to recognize Willie Washington’s 18 years of service and commitment to CMTA.  Willie served as CMTA’s workers’ compensation, human resources and safety and health lobbyist.
At the reception, Mr. Washington was honored by a representative of Senator Charles Poochigian’s (R-Fresno) office with an official resolution from the California Legislature paying tribute to his long career.  Additionally, former colleagues shared heartfelt personal stories of their time working with Mr. Washington.
CMTA President Jack Stewart thanked Mr. Washington for his impeccable service to the association and recognized him as "a great man and friend."
When it was his turn, Mr. Washington expressed his deep appreciation for everyone he had worked with throughout his career.  He then introduced his family and thanked each of them for their love and support.
Although Mr. Washington officially announced his retirement in May, he will remain a consultant to CMTA through December.  In between, Mr. Washington will spend time with his wife and six grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
CMTA wishes Mr. Washington well on his retirement and hopes he wins the new battles that lie ahead on the golf course.
