Alder Wehelie’s Updates
Introduction: Nasra Wehelie
My name is Nasra Wehelie and it is my great honor to serve as your interim alder for District 7. I have been a resident of Madison's District 7 for the past twenty-two years. I have seen the district grow from farm area to its current multifamily neighborhoods as well as established and thriving businesses.
Nothing in life has come easily for me and I have had the wisdom and courage to overcome real life challenges that taught me the insight to not only be an eternal optimist, but also an achiever of my personal, professional, short- and long-term goals. My husband and I have raised four kids and instilled in them the desire to be successful in what they choose to pursue and served as their role models and life coaches. During my 31 years in Madison, I have accomplished numerous personal and professional goals including achieving higher education and work experience in both public and private institutions and nonprofit organizations. You can read about why I wanted to be interim alder and what I hope to accomplish in a November 14 article from The Capital Times.
It is my honor and privilege to serve my community and city at a higher capacity to make meaningful changes. I have experience in strategies to organize individuals for collective action, as well as strategies of inclusive decision making to make sure all voices in our communities are heard. I see myself as a leader who understands the issues at hand, listens to the constituents' problems and advocates for them. I am a consensus builder who can reach out to others. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
Wishing you and your family abundance, hope, peace and a festive holiday season!
