Pierz City Council Member Adrian Welle announced he will seek the DFL endorsement for the Minnesota House of Representatives District 9B seat. As a result of recent redistricting this district is comprised of portions of Morrison and Todd counties.
Welle was elected to the Pierz City Council in 2008. He currently serves on the city’s Safety and Regulations Committee. He has been an active member of the Pierz and Little Falls communities. While pursuing his degree he served as an intern for the city of Little Falls in the spring of 2011.
A graduate of St. Cloud State University with a degree in public administration, Welle currently serves as the City Clerk-Treasurer for the city of Upsala. “I know firsthand the struggles of municipalities and the people of rural Minnesota,” he said.
Welle is a lifelong resident of Morrison County. He grew up on a chicken and dairy farm near the city of Lastrup, with his mother and father, David and Roxanne and also two sisters and a brother, Amy, Aric and Anna. Welle enjoys hunting, fishing, traveling and meeting new people.
“Spending my whole life in this district has given me a strong sense of pride for this district and its people,” said Welle. “I look forward to working together with the people of House District 9B and meeting with residents to discuss issues important to them.”
