Nixon is a police offer. He began his law enforcement career as a community volunteer, then serving on a drug interdiction task force before returning to patrol officer duties. As an officer, Nixon helped set up new school resource officer positions in five school districts.
Nixon's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Saving the Pension System
- Excerpt: "Chicago politicians have stolen from the State pension systems for years. They have gone to Springfield and used the pension savings of our State workers like their own personal piggy bank. ...We must bring all parties to the table and come up with a solution that works for Illinois, it's employees, and most importantly, the taxpayers."
- Medicaid Reform
- Excerpt: "Over the past 10 years Medicaid has grown 300% this clearly is unsustainable. We must purge the Medicaid rolls of all ineligible recipients. It is estimated that the State of Illinois could save Billions merely by removing ineligible recipients from Medicaid."
- Ending Welfare Abuses
- Excerpt: "We require photo ID for almost all transactions in our society, why would we not incorporate a photo ID into our welfare system in order to avoid abuses? As a police officer, I see State assistance cards sold on the street for half value or less so that the seller can then turn around and use the money for alcohol or narcotics."
- Second Amendment Rights
- Excerpt: "Illinois is the very last state in the country to adopt some form of conceal carry. The Supreme Court of the United States has upheld that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right, yet the Chicago politicians continue to deny Illnoisans their constitutional rights. ...It is time for Springfield to realize that gun control doesn't work, we must allow our citizens to protect themselves and their families."
Nixon ran in the 2012 election for Illinois House of Representatives District 79. Nixon was unopposed in the March 20 Republican primary and was defeated by Katherine Cloonen (D) in the general election, which took place on November 6, 2012.
