Adam Lindsay joined the Town of Clayton in September 2016 with nearly 14 years of local government experience. Raised in a big family in the Greensboro area, Lindsay was the sixth of eight kids. Lindsay married his wife, Leighanna, while studying at Brigham Young University and, when the new couple was looking for a place to start a family of their own, they wasted no time moving home to their native North Carolina. Lindsay transferred to N.C. State University, where in 2003 he graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in communications. In 2005, he earned a Master of Public Administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While pursuing his master’s, Lindsay also gained professional experience serving the Town of Holly Springs as a project analyst from 2003 to 2005. Lindsay joined Rockingham County in December 2005 as a budget and performance manager, and in February 2010 he assumed the post of strategic management director. In 2013, Lindsay took his most recent job as assistant manager of Southern Pines. “I am enjoying getting to know people in the Clayton area, being part of the good things already started here and continuing to make it better,” Lindsay said.

Public Information Officer (PIO) – Stacy Beard

Deputy Town Manager Nancy Medlin

Often seen around Town armed with both a still camera, a video camera AND an iPad, Public Information Officer Stacy Beard is charged with keeping the public informed about all that’s going on (and there’s a LOT going on these days!). She joined our staff in the Fall of 2012 and is the Town’s first-ever PIO. She manages the Town’s new user-friendly website, all social media outlets, media requests/relations, and writes and produces content for the Town’s 24-hour public access channel, Town of Clayton TV. Stacy enjoys telling Clayton’s story and engaging the public because it’s an extension of her former life as a TV reporter. She spent 15 years reporting for network affiliates from the wilds of Montana to most recently at WRAL-TV in Raleigh. In fact, it was several months into her job here in Clayton that Stacy learned she had won a prestigious Edward R. Murrow award for her reporting.  Stacy escaped TV to spend more time with her husband Cory, son Spencer, and Labrador Wrigley who loves walking Clayton’s greenways, but she's realizing she's busier than ever!
