“We need a conservative leader who is able to work with all parties to get things done. That’s why I’m endorsing Mikaela Nix for State House 47,” stated Edgewood Mayor Ray Bagshaw.
“I’m especially honored to have earned the support and endorsement of these leaders because they are the elected officials who are closest to the residents and understand the needs of District 47,” said Nix. “They want an effective and dedicated leader who will fight for the families and residents of our area, and that’s exactly what I intend to do.”
Republican Mikaela Nix is a first-time candidate, businesswoman, attorney, fatherhood advocate and only working mom in the race. Nix was appointed to the 2016 Orange County Charter Review Commission by the Board of County Commissioners and was selected for the American Enterprise Institute National Leadership Network. She teaches at Valencia College and Seminole State College as an adjunct professor.
Before going into law, Nix partnered with University of Central Florida Incubator to start her own company, Collegiate Staffing USA, that helped graduating seniors with job placement.
“I’m a businesswoman, a working mom and a fiscally conservative taxpayer who believes in leading by example, and my faith inspires me to give back,” said Nix. “Those are the values and work ethic I will carry with me as the next State Representative for District 47.”
