MENTONE – Ann Wiesehan was unanimously voted in to the Franklin Township Advisory Board Thursday by the Republican caucus at the Mentone Council Chambers.
There were no other candidates. The two precinct committewomen who voted in the caucus were Wiesehan and Michelle Puckett.
Wiesehan is a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserves. She works as a field consultant with the state of Indiana.
She has been married to her husband, Don, for 33 years and has two sons and two grandchildren.
Wiesehan has been involved in several community programs. She is a past member of the Kosciusko County Fair Board and is currently involved in the 4-H Horse and Pony Club. She has been involved in the parent-teacher group at Mentone Elementary School, among other groups.
“I like to be involved in my community,” she said.
She said when she heard the position was becoming available with the resignation of Jim Eads, as he is moving to Tennessee, Wiesehan thought it would be neat to apply for the position as it is local and the community is great and she “wanted to get a little bit closer to home so to speak.”
She thinks the board is doing a really good job, so she hopes to bring in some new ideas and learn about the issues the board is facing.
