Baldwin County District Attorney Hallie Dixon will not seek another term in office in the March 2016 presidential primary, according to her office.
In a statement released today, Dixon said she made the decision this week after prayer and consideration. Dixon is currently serving a six-year term that began in January 2011.
“I am incredibly grateful for the voters who gave me the opportunity to serve as your District Attorney and all those who never ceased sending their prayers and support,” she said. “I was elected to champion the people and to imbue your District Attorney’s office with a passion for seeking truth and justice. Having fulfilled that mission is the greatest professional accomplishment I can imagine, and I will remain forever honored to have been given that privilege.”
The deadline to file election campaign papers is Friday. Former Judge Robert Wilters is the only candidate who has qualified to run for district attorney.
