Your City Council President
II have been honored to serve as City Council President twice and haven't taken the positon lightly.
We are so excited to announce we will be having a ribbon cutting shortly for our new Wheelchair swing to add to the playground, purchased by Alhambra. We are hoping to be awarded a grant for the playground canopy in the upcoming month. Thankful for Harrison County Supervisor, Beverly Martin as she is helping us with a splash pad in Hiller Park. We are looking into more excitement opportunities with fund-raised money such as outdoor exercise equipment, blue way water trail, extending the dog park, and resurfacing the tennis courts.
Hard Work Pays off!
As you are aware, since I was elected in 2013. My Hiller Park committee and I have work as a team with the City Of Biloxi with providing fundraising events as well as family fun filled days. We have been fundraising to be able to replace that hazardous playground equipment that had been in place for many years. We also strive to make the new playground, special needs accessible.
Finally, we were able to purchase two new playgrounds and swing sets!
Playground 1- 5- 12 year olds
Playground 2- 2-5 year olds
WheelChair swing is being ordered now
Next up, canopy for playground

Hiller Park Dog Park
My Hiller park committee and I have raised funds from local vets to build a small dog park in Hiller Park. We hope to expand this park and put in some obstacle courses for our furry friends.
The dog park is named after my sweet little toy poodle named Pixie who passed away way too early. I miss her everyday!
Look out for our next Pixie dog festival
