Jarad Giddens

Nixa Mayor Jarad Giddens is promising sustainable growth and increased community involvement as he was sworn in last week to replace outgoing mayor Brian Steele.

Having grown up in Springfield, Giddens and his family have lived in Nixa for 19 years. A few years ago, Giddens realized that he had “found our home and wasn’t leaving anytime soon.” He served on the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission before being elected to Nixa city council in 2019. With incumbent mayor Steele not running for another term, Gidden ran unopposed in last month’s election to take the city’s top spot.

In a speech after being sworn in last week, Giddens said the new council “has our work cut out for us” in managing the growing city of Nixa.
