Try be­fore you buy at mock meet­ings

Kalamunda Reporter - - Opinion -

THE City of Kala­munda is lead­ing the way, with the first ever mock coun­cil meet­ing for com­mu­nity mem­bers think­ing about stand­ing for Coun­cil.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Rhonda Hardy said any el­i­gi­ble ratepayer could stand for elec­tion.

“We are giv­ing com­mu­nity mem­bers a chance to put them­selves in the coun­cil’s shoes, sit in the coun­cil cham­bers and par­tic­i­pate in a mock meet­ing,” she said.

“We un­der­stand it is the first time an event like this has been held for prospec­tive can­di­dates and have had some re­ally en­cour­ag­ing feed­back from the Elec­toral Com­mis­sion.

“I strongly en­cour­age res­i­dents to get on board and sup­port this in­no­va­tive idea and make it a suc­cess by your par­tic­i­pa­tion.

“Ask your ques­tions and find out about nom­i­nat­ing for Coun­cil.”

The free sem­i­nar will be held in the Coun­cil Cham­bers, 2 Rail­way Road, Kala­munda on Septem­ber 5 at 5.30pm. To RSVP call 9257 9956.
