Angel McPhail Brister is pleased to announce her candidacy for ALDERMAN AT LARGE for the city of Magee.
Magee is my hometown. My parents are Diane McPhail and the late Joe McPhail. My father was owner and pharmacist for Choctaw Discount Drugs. My father served on the board of alderman for 2 terms. My parents love and service for this community has inspired me to seek the position of ALDERMAN AT LARGE. I am a graduate of Simpson County Academy and received my associate degree in nursing from Jefferson Community College in Watertown, NY. I have been married to Mark Brister of Lawrence County for 24 years and we have three children: Diana Brister Maddox, wife of Reed Maddox, Allie Jo and Kyle. We have three grandchildren. I am a member of First Baptist Church and a member of the Chamber of Commerce. With my husband serving in the military and having lived in several places, I came to value life in Magee as a close knit family. Magee is where we wanted to raise our children and call home.
Nursing in Simpson County for over fifteen years, I have realized the importance of healthcare for all ages in our community. Taking care of our “local people” is comforting and rewarding as a nurse. According to Dunn and Bradstreet data, there are 3600 healthcare businesses within a 50 mile radius of Magee. We need to continue to see growth in our local healthcare. Our sports complex has something to offer for children of all ages. The growth of Magee in all areas is very important to our community and allows us to shop, eat and play local.
My sincere appreciation goes out to the Magee Volunteer Fire Department, Magee Police Department and EMS personnel. Magee was voted the sixth safest city in Mississippi. I would be honored to work with these departments to ensure that we continue being a safe place to live. I desire the position of ALDERMAN AT LARGE as a means of service to our community.
Thank you for your consideration and your vote on May 2. My thought is to always be yourself and make sure that you are seeking any office with the heart of a servant. Help me, Angel McPhail Brister, to put a NEW VOICE in our city government.
