Dane Maxwell announces campaign for Pascagoula Mayor

Pascagoula – Pascagoula native, Dane Maxwell, 52, announces his campaign for Pascagoula Mayor in the Republican Primary. Maxwell graduated from Pascagoula High School in 1981, worked at Ingalls Shipbuilding as an Outside Machinist Apprentice and attended Jackson County Junior College. Maxwell served in the US Marine corps, served 20 years in law enforcement and created several successful businesses.

Maxwell said, “after talking with my family and friends, I have decided to run for Mayor of my hometown. I have been successful in business by creating several companies and I co-founded a successful business in Pascagoula with my brother which still operates here today.”

Maxwell’s experience in managing government agencies and creating jobs in the private sector uniquely qualifies him for the position of Mayor. “I have been affected personally by government bureaucracy, understand tax burdens on businesses and I’ve signed paychecks for employees. Driving around town and seeing vacant buildings, empty lots and hundreds of houses for sale, I feel strongly my experience will help turn Pascagoula around and begin the process of rebuilding our city as it was years ago. Today we begin the new journey together where we become business friendly, where great customer service and respect from our public employees will be demanded and where our city officials will focus on ways to encourage new businesses by removing the unnecessary obstacles for new businesses. Not only do we as leaders have to make the city appealing, we have to make sure we support new families who want to raise their children here and older families who want to come here to retire.”

Maxwell is the son of former Mayor, Robbie Maxwell. Maxwell is married to Biloxi native Donna Brockmeyer Maxwell and they have 3 girls. For more information on the campaign, please visit www.danemaxwellformayor.com. The Republican Primary is on May 2nd.
