Offering a Fresh Perspective

Diana Adams for West Melbourne City Council

Diana believes that local elected officials should represent all citizens in their community, which means attentively listening to their concerns, asking questions to learn more, analyzing all available data, and making informed decisions. She has been a public servant and active volunteer in our community and wants to bring that dedication and fresh perspective to the West Melbourne City Council.

Small Business Owner, Nonprofit Leader, Former Educator

Raised by a single mom for most of her life, Diana grew up in Pennsylvania and worked hard to overcome physical challenges associated with cerebral palsy, a disability she’s had since birth. Refusing to let her circumstances and disability define her, Diana earned scholarships for her education and graduated from Pennsylvania State University with top honors as a Schreyer Honors scholar and with a B.S. in Elementary Education. Following in her mother’s footsteps, she became a teacher and moved to Brevard County, where she met her husband, Joshua, at Calvary Chapel Melbourne. After earning a Masters in Educational Leadership and teaching for seven years, Diana transitioned from teaching to focus on earning a Doctorate in Public Administration while continuing in public service. She is currently the Executive Director of Brevard Heart Foundation, and along with her husband, owns and operates Rock Paper Simple, a small business in Melbourne, where she seeks community engagement opportunities and ways to give back to the community.

Diana has a desire to serve her community while being able to think critically, analyze data, respectfully listen to others’ perspectives, and believes in leading by example.

As a small business owner and active community volunteer, Diana has supported the missions of local organizations including Junior Achievement of the Space Coast, Children’s Hunger Project, New Life Mission, Candlelighters of Brevard, Lions Club, and Keep Brevard Beautiful. As a West Melbourne resident with a love for her community, she currently serves on the West Melbourne Parks and Recreation (Deputy Chair) and Public Library Advisory Boards, as well as Secretary of the Space Coast Field of Dreams board.

Passionate about West Melbourne’s Future

Diana is running for a seat on the West Melbourne City Council because she has a passion for public service, a love of her community, and believes a fresh perspective on the city council would make a positive difference in West Melbourne’s future. She believes that each person is a valuable member of the community and being an active citizen ensures our voices are heard when it comes to the present and future of our community. Her coursework and research has given her the knowledge to understand city budgets, planning and zoning challenges, and other topics related to public sector management, and she already regularly attends City Council meetings. She isn’t afraid to ask questions to fully understand an issue in order to make informed decisions.

While she filed for and began running for a council seat in January, she was appointed unanimously in June by the council to fill a vacancy until the November election Diana is currently serving as your West Melbourne Councilwoman, and working to empower the voices of all our friends and neighbors, seeking effective and efficient solutions to city issues, and planning strategically for our city’s future so we can continue to be a place where families and small businesses can thrive together while preserving our environment. Diana invites the public to reach out with questions, thoughts, or ideas in regards to West Melbourne’s future so we can work towards that future together.

Since being on the council, Diana has been hard at work for you and enthusiastically working with the rest of council to impact city policies including approving the 2022-2023 city budget and priorities, hiring the new city manager, setting the millage rate, planning infrastructure and flood risk reduction projects, and more.

“The Council trusted me to step up and impact city policy, and I ask you to to put that same trust in me with a vote on November 8th so I can continue serving our city.”
