People from all walks of life can become candidates in the upcoming election. Background and education are not obstacles to applying.

Those who are elected by the community are supported to understand their role through an induction and onboarding program.

A great way to get familiar with the role of a Councillor is by attending or livestreaming a Council meeting.

The next meeting will take place on Wednesday 26 June at 2pm.
