Meet Jerry Castañon

Jerry Castañon Sr. has lived in the City of Dixon for over 15 years and Solano County 36 years with his wife Anna Lisa, son Jerry Jr, daughters Samantha & Amanda, son in-law Demarco and grandson Nicholaus.

Jerry cannot imagine a life that does not include community or public service, he has had the honor to serve Dixon on the Planning Commission from 2010 thru 2012, City Council 2012 thru 2016. Mr. Castañon just recently retired from the Northern California Carpenters Regional Council/Field Representative. After 35 years of construction Jerry is ready to put dedicated full-time emphasis on public and community service.

Jerry has remained active, engaged and motivated with non-profit organizations such as: Dixon Family Services, Dixon Chamber of Commerce, Member of the Dixon Rotary, St. Peter’s Catholic Church Knights of Columbus Member, Dixon Teen Center Volunteer and Veteran supporter.

Mr. Castañon believes “A true leader always leads by example”. Experience, Leadership & Accountability is Jerry’s reputation, he is known in treating everyone with dignity and respect when it comes to community issues.


Congressman John Garamendi

We need to continue to revitalize downtown, In 2016 while on the City Council my support for the Pardi Market  was moving forward with design, two years later November 2018 project was approved for construction. Here we are August 2020 project completed. Dixon needs a councilman that will support projects in and outside of downtown so families can come together and enjoy this jewel I call Dixon.

We need to strongly promote a business friendly community so that the success of this business grows. Maintenance of Dixon is ongoing, curb, gutter & sidewalks, shrub and lighting, road & traffic safety, these are some of the important issues we need to deal with not kick the can down the road.

One of my goals will be “The Parkway Boulevard Overpass” needing a councilman to help champion and bring this project to fruition. I am your “shovel ready” candidate and would truly appreciate your vote.

As a prior Councilman Jerry has reached out to many residents to hear their concerns and offer creative solutions to make Dixon a better place to live.

I have known Jerry for many years and have found him to be a caring, compassionate, intelligent man, willing to listen to all sides of an issue.
His tireless involvement in the community, through Rotary, Dixon Chamber of Commerce, Dixon Family Services , Knights Of Columbus, Dixon Teen Center, to name just a few, shows that he is a man of service and integrity, who truly wants the best for residents in Dixon. I know he will continue to serve the City Council with the same passion he exhibits in all of his endeavors.

Dear Jerry,

I congratulate you on your decision to run this fall for a seat on the Dixon City Council in its District 4.

Public service is all about dedicating one’s efforts to improving the quality of life of one’s community and continually improving its future prospects.

That is a role that your life is well-accustomed to since you devoted your professional career to construction and translating ideas into beautiful results.

You will bring great life skills and concern for the well-being of people to your service on the Dixon City Council. Is my very great honor, Jerry, to endorse you for election to the City Council’s 4th District this November.

Onward and Upward,

Assemblyman Ken Cooley, 8th AD
Chair, Assembly Rules Committee
California State Assembly

Faithful to his word and his community, Jerry is someone I admire greatly. We need his voice and commitment to continue on our city council.

– Nancy Wells

Jerry helps make Dixon a great place to live. His willingness to attend and participate in activities in this town make him both a valuable citizen and a public servant we can count on.

Attn: Citizens of Dixon

The Solano County Registrar of Voters failed to include Jerry Castañon Sr.’s Statement of Candidacy (Posted below) in The Voter Information Guide which is included with the mail in ballot. It is with great disappointment that I am now left to pick up the pieces of this negligence by having local newspaper publishers and media outlets post my statement in hopes to remedy for this so called “Printer Error”. According to the registrar of voters office their mission statement says “is to ensure federal, state and local elections are conducted timely, responsibly, and with the highest level of professional election standards, accountability, security and integrity, intended to earn and maintain public confidence in the electoral process.” The purpose of the voter information guide is to inform voters of the candidate’s brief statement. This is a detrimental turn in my campaign that I had no control of, causing an unfair election process. I will continue to work diligently on my campaign in earning your vote. As your transparent candidate It is important that I notify all voters in Dixon district 4.
