Dear Editor,

Anissa Welch has been a resident of Milton for 12 years. Her three children have all attended Milton schools. 

Anissa has been active in the community for years. She is serving her second term on the Milton City Council. She serves on the personnel and finance committee, the library board and the public safety committee.

Anissa was an original member of the “Celebrate Milton” committee. She is on the leadership team and is a member of the “100 Women Campaign” to aid in fundraising to remodel and modernize Milton Public Library.

Anissa has been employed by Rock County for 22 years, and is a juvenile probation officer. She graduated in 2011 from Wellstone, a non-profit organization that trains people who are running for an elected office. Because of her interest in leadership roles, she was a 2012 Emerge graduate. Emerge is a training program for women interested in serving their community and participating in leadership positions. Anissa truly shows that she is committed to learning how to do a job well.

Anissa has been a master gardener volunteer, is the co-chair of the Milton Youth Coalition, a charter member of the Lions Club, and a member of the Milton FFA Alumni. She has volunteered for the Salvation Army, the Milton Optimist Club, MAYC, the Milton July 4th Parade, and Milton Parks and Recreation.

Anissa would do an excellent job as mayor. She demonstrates strong leadership skills as an engaged alderperson and is dedicated to the city of Milton.

Connie Weeks, Milton
