Diana Welch throwing her hat in the ring for Dover’s mayoral race

DOVER, Del. – Diana Welch is throwing her hat in the ring for the mayoral election.

Welch is a veteran, who stayed in Delaware after an accidental landing here. From Florida, she has been here for 22 years, running businesses, being a mom, and owning properties. Early on Welch was told not to move to Dover however she did because she saw the town’s charm. She says if elected she plans to increase Dover’s livability rate by providing affordable housing and creating more open green spaces.

Welch says she’s entering the race because Dover needs a change. “I came here 22 years ago and not much has changed. So its really time, now is the time, we need to move into he 21st century, we need to get more residents down here. We need to have a denser population. We need to have affordable housing for people who are college students and servers,” says Diana Welch, Dover Mayoral candidate.

Welch says she may have landed in Dover on an accident, however, she stayed here on purpose. She adds now is the time for change. The current Dover mayor, Robin Christiansen has filed for re-election.

The Dover Municipal election will take place April 18th.
