Scott Perryman represents District 1 and is an 18-year veteran real estate agent with Murney Associates Realtors in Nixa.
Born in Lebanon Missouri and raised in Springfield, Scott attended Kickapoo High School and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography from MSU. Scott is passionate about helping others and co-founded RIDE ON, an annual bike ride fundraiser benefiting persons with developmental disabilities.
This is not the first time Scott has lived in Nixa and each time he moved back he realized more what an exceptional place it is. “I choose to live and work in Nixa because of its friendly people, safe neighborhoods, and great schools,” says Perryman.
Scott decided to run for council at the encouragement of other Nixa residents and was elected in April 2018. “I’ve always had a strong sense of volunteerism, patriotism and civic duty and was looking for a new way to serve our community,” Scott says.
“Since joining council, I have discovered how important it is to develop visions for Nixa’s future in an open and collaborative way,” says Perryman. So far he’s been most impressed by the dedication and professionalism of city staff, “Each of the city’s departments do an outstanding job and we are so blessed to have these hard working folks making our city what it is.”
Perryman hopes to play a role in enhancing the quality of life in Nixa through economic development and infrastructure improvements such as sidewalks, bike lanes, and parks. He is also excited to help select the city’s next City Administrator and to help promote Nixa’s nationally recognized per capita usage of renewable energy and Gigabit City status to attract new entrepreneurs and startup businesses.
Scott says he’s, “extremely honored to serve District 1 constituents and my door is always open for discussions”.
