✅ Stiffen Penalties for Criminals who Destroy Public Property
✅ Fight against Anarchy Polices of the Leftist Movement
✅ Protect our Second Amendment Rights

ABOUT PAUL MIXON
As the Pastor at Central Baptist Church, Paul has made reaching people his first priority. Paul believes that the people of Okaloosa County deserve a government that is responsive, ethical, and committed to protecting our quality of life.

Safe communities foster a better economy, more jobs, and growing opportunities.

Okaloosa County is the most beautiful place on earth. We have so much to be thankful for. Let's do everything we can to preserve our freedom, remembering that responsibility starts with the people, not the government.
— Paul Mixon
