        Mike Welch is running for Village of Elba Mayor

Hello. My name is Michael Welch. I am running for the office of Mayor this coming Tuesday March 19th, and I would like to ask for your vote!

My wife and I have lived in Elba for over 5 years. While we’re relative newcomers to Elba, we love our life here. I grew up as a big city kid in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. My wife grew up in Buffalo.  Now that we’re a little older and our kids are grown, we have come to love the small village life of Elba with its rural community and “small town” atmosphere. We love the Onion Festival, the parades, the free concerts in the park, and the yard sale days.                                                                                                                                                                

Why do I want to be Mayor?

I would like the opportunity to serve the community I love. It’s as simple as that. I am an enthusiastic resident of Elba, excited about the possibility of serving the people of our village as mayor. I am committed to keeping the special character of our village alive, and making it shine even brighter!

My qualifications?

I have worked for years as a supervisor in the pharmaceutical and retail industries. I was an EMT and volunteer firefighter for many years. I am currently the chairman of the Town of Elba Zoning Board of Appeals. I am a Committeeman for the Conservative Party of Genesee County here in Elba (dist. #1).

The focus of my campaign:

  1. Honest and open leadership.
  2. Bring more communication of Elba government & local events to the residents of Elba. I want everyone to know what’s going on in our community--from new laws being considered, to community yard sale days.
  3. Bring government, law enforcement, fire/rescue, high school, and residents together to work on emergency preparedness for our community. This would include offering CERT classes, and even possibly, run mass casualty exercises here in the community—in order to make our community safe.
  4. Bring small businesses back to Main Street.
  5. Bring the Onion Festival back to the park.

Please contact me with support, questions or concerns. (585) 813-8606, [email protected]

Please Vote Tuesday, March 19th 

1:00 pm

Glitz-N-Glamour Salon owner Nicole Voltura will hold a “Cut-a-Thon” for her brother, Batavia resident Dan Nash, on Sunday, March 17 from 1 until 5 pm.

The event will include raffle items as well as a 50/50 raffle.  Voltura said there are 26 confirmed baskets for the raffle so far.

Items range from party mixes to wine, a Keurig machine, gift certificates to local restaurants, hair products, etc.

Ticket prices are $1 for three tickets or $10 for arms-length.

As the event name suggests, the salon will also be offering haircuts to those who would like them.  There is no set donation amount for those – people are just encouraged to give whatever they can.

Nash was diagnosed with a brain tumor in February.  According to Voltura, doctors were able to remove 90% of the tumor and are waiting to see if the rest will disappear.

Meanwhile, Nash has had doctor visits two or three times a week and has a long recovery ahead of him.  To make things worse, he is out of work and has health insurance that, according to Voltura, “hardly covers anything.”

Voltura herself is a cancer survivor.  She remembers how the community came together to help her and her family in their time of need, and she sees the “Dan Nash Cut-a-Thon” as a way for her to “give back.”

Even though Nash is her brother, Voltura said she would do this for anybody.

“I like to help however I can,” she said.

Glitz-N-Glamour Salon is located at 319 Ellicott St. in Batavia.  For more information or to purchase raffle tickets – which anyone can do, even if they cannot make the event – call Voltura at 813-9757 or send her a message on Facebook via the event page (
