About Me

– AmyRose


As someone who has been both a renter and a homeowner in West Allis, I possess knowledge and insight into both perspectives. I know what it is like to be a working mom and a stay-at-home mom with each having their own unique challenges. I have experience of having a blended family with children in various stages of life from school, to working, to active military deployment, and starting their own families. My husband works a blue-collar job with many obstacles to maneuver and I understand how it affects him as a person and our family. Being a former small business owner, I know what it means to make those hard decisions. Like you, I know the struggles and hardships that face families in our community.


I’ve accumulated a wealth of life experience through hard work and volunteerism. I’ve done several search, rescue, clean up, and rebuilding in communities affected by natural disasters. I continue to be a mentor for teens and young adults.

Tangible Results

I possess the ability to not only listen to others, but also to understand the bigger picture, and I have a track record of consistently achieving the desired outcomes. Some organizations that I am actively involved with:

The Advocate Aurora Health Deaf and Hard of Hearing Patient and Family Advisory Council; KODA (Kids of Deaf Adults) Midwest; and the Wisconsin Wolves Basketball organization.

Why run for Mayor of West Allis?

What does being Mayor of West Allis mean to you?

In addition to being the city’s spokesperson, I view the mayor as a collaborator and primary advocate for the city of West Allis, uniting a diverse community to pursue common objectives. Working alongside the Common Council, administration, community groups, businesses, and residents, the mayor fosters an inclusive environment. This approach aims to cultivate a strong sense of community belonging and create plenty of opportunities for residents to actively participate in addressing the needs of our city. Being proactive over reactive, adapting strategies as needed. Making decisions that take thoughtful consideration of various perspectives, weighing outcomes and possible impacts, prioritizing what is in the best interest of our community as a whole.

Overall, being in this leadership role embodies these responsibilities that will bring West Allis a prosperous future, while serving in the best interests of its residents.

“AmyRose is a motivator of many. Her excellence and hard work out in the field motivated others to do more to better the state of Wisconsin”

Mike Hoffman Regional Field Director

“AmyRose is a joy to spend time with. She makes me laugh and helps me when she has no time to but manages to get everything done. I have no idea where she gets her energy from. When we talk about serious things, I am affirmed by her words and actions. I’m glad she is a part of my story.”

Peggy Quam Chief Financial Officer, PJL Housing

“AmyRose lives out being the first person in the office and the last one out. She works until the job is done. She is as tenacious as a bull dog, especially when working for constituents.”
