Phazhon Nash

City Council, At-Large, Roanoke, VA

2024 Endorsement

Phazhon is a passionate candidate running for Roanoke City Council with a mission to serve the community. Born and raised in Roanoke, he draws inspiration from his single mother, Vietnam War Veteran grandfather, and trailblazing grandmother who was the first Black person and woman elected as Vice President for Roanoke's local CWA Union.

With a Bachelor of Science in Community Health and a minor in American Government from George Mason University, Phazhon has a strong educational background. Currently working as an Operations Consultant at Carilion Clinic in Emergency Medicine, he ensures that all patients receive high-quality and equitable care across six emergency departments in southwestern Virginia. Committed to continuous growth, he is pursuing a Masters in Population Health Science from the University of Alabama online.

Phazhon's experience as a Community Outreach Liaison for Delegate Sam Rasoul provided valuable insights into the concerns of Roanoke citizens. Recognizing the need for a councilman who listens, cares, and collaborates to address community issues, Phazhon decided to step forward. Though young, he is well-prepared to serve the citizens of Roanoke and make the city a healthier, safer, more equitable, and livable place for all residents to call home.
