“I come from a family who serves. When I decided to apply I had no idea I would be chosen,” she said. “I’m not about any type of group or agenda. I see a lot of potential in the city and I just want to make it even better and positive growth.”

Hathaway is from Santa Rosa County and a graduate of Pace High School. She said she moved to the city of Milton four years ago with her husband, Bryan, and her son, Liam. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a minor in business management.

Hathaway works as an assistant office supervisor at the Tax Collector’s office in Pace where she has worked for six years. She said her experience in the tax collector’s office will help with what she faces in office.

Heather Hathaway receives instruction from Executive Assistant Pam Haddan on November 14 after being appointed to seat Ward 1.

“I feel like my skills, leadership and experience can help make a difference, and I am willing to put in the necessary effort to make that happen,” Hathaway said.

She’s already put a plan into motion. At the December 12 meeting, she proposed a motion to place the area around  Mt. Pilgrim African Baptist Church into it’s own historic district.

“Over the past week I went and looked at Lucille Johnson Park and became more familiar with that area,” Hathaway said, “and I want to create a new historic district around the church area.” She said she’d like to include the Keyser Cemetery as well. She added she wanted the city’s Historic Preservation Board and the Santa Rosa Historical Society to be involved in establishing the district.
