Step up as a coun­cil­lor

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

NOM­I­NA­TIONS for the City of Swan coun­cil elec­tions opened last week, with seven coun­cil­lors up for re-elec­tion.

The nom­i­na­tion pe­riod will run un­til Septem­ber 14 at 4pm sharp, with those in­ter­ested in run­ning en­cour­aged to get in early.

WA Elec­toral Com­mis­sioner David Ker­slake said nom­i­nat­ing as a can­di­date was a great way to in­flu­ence your com­mu­nity’s long-term vi­sion.

“Stand­ing for coun­cil pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for cit­i­zens to be di­rectly in­volved in shap­ing their lo­cal com­mu­nity,” he said.

“Coun­cil­lors make crit­i­cal de­ci­sions that di­rectly im­pact the lives of lo­cal res­i­dents.”

If you’re in­ter­ested in run­ning, make an appointment with the City of Swan’s re­turn­ing of­fi­cer and lodge your nom­i­na­tion.
