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.”
