Welcome to the Town of Bailey's Website!

On behalf of the Town Commissioners, Town Staff and Mayor of Bailey, North Carolina, I am proud to welcome and introduce you to the Bailey Community. It is my distinct pleasure and great honor to familiarize you with our elected leadership, municipal administration and town services.

We hope you discover how wonderful the Town of Bailey is and how well we treat our guests. Bailey is an outstanding place to live and work. Located in the southern end of Nash County, the Town of Bailey offers excellent municipal services and has dedicated itself to professional protective services. The Town of Bailey is also served by an award-winning public school district and an exemplary, all-volunteer fire service with quick response times. The Town of Bailey is less than forty (40) miles from the Capital of North Carolina. We are actively focused on improving our community's capability to create opportunities for advancement.

As Mayor, I intend to be available, dedicated, and responsive. Also, I appreciate our Chamber of Commerce, our citizen volunteers, and our local business leaders. Last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank our citizens for making the Town of Bailey an awesome place to live, work, and raise a family.

It is my honor to serve as the Mayor of Bailey, North Carolina.
