Fairhope native Phil Nix has announced his candidacy for the Place 4 seat on the Fairhope City Council.
Nix previously served as Baldwin County’s Tax Collector and Revenue Commissioner for 24 years until 2009, when he accepted the position as Administrator for St Lawrence Catholic Parish, a position he has held for the last seven years.
“I don’t consider myself as a politician but a servant of the people,” Nix said. “Service to others has been a big part of my life and especially for the last seven years, so I decided to take this desire to serve and use it to help continue to move this City in a positive direction.”
In the past, Nix served as president of the Fairhope Rotary Club, as treasurer and vice president of the Association of Assessing Officials and also served as treasurer and grand knight for the Knights of Columbus. Additionally, he was a certified tax administrator for the State of Alabama and taught classes through Auburn University’s Governmental Services. Nix is also a past recipient of the Christ the King Medal for the Archdiocese of Mobile for Service.
Nix is proud to be a citizen of this beautiful city and would love to see Fairhope continue to be the best place to live and raise a family.
“I pledge to be fiscally responsible and do what is best for the citizens of Fairhope and to insure that all the necessary services are provided for the citizens in the most efficient way,” Nix said. “The charm of Fairhope is very important and I want it to continue to be that way, and even though I cannot stop the growth I want to continue to make sure it is controlled so that the charm does not go away.”
Nix, born and raised in Fairhope, received a Bachelor of Science from the University of South Alabama. He and his wife, Molly, have been married for 30 years and have two children, Stephen Nix and Sarah Nix Jennings. Nix will host a campaign kickoff event July 12 from 5:30 until 7 p.m. at the Fairhope American Legion on Mobile St.
