Become a voice for the community – nominate for election as a local government councillor

People with a passion for serving the community and contributing towards the decision-making process of local government are being encouraged to nominate for a position on the City of Mandurah Council.

Nominations for the six vacancies on Council will open on Thursday, September 3 ahead of the City of Mandurah Local Government Ordinary Election on October 17.

There is one vacancy each on the Town and East wards, and two vacancies each on the Coastal and North wards, all with four-year terms.

The City is encouraging people from diverse backgrounds to nominate for election as a local government councillor. Nominations close at 4pm on Thursday, September 10.

By becoming involved in your local Council and serving as a Councillor (Elected Member), you will have the unique opportunity to represent your community by contributing towards making important decisions for the future and becoming the voice of your area.

While serving as a Councillor requires a certain level of community involvement, many previous and standing Councillors carry out their Council commitments while also holding full-time employment.

Potential candidates can find more information about eligibility and how to nominate on the City’s website, www.mandurah.wa.gov.au/elections.htm or contact Returning Officer Ian Frame on 0403 020 637 or frameij@hotmail.com

An information session for prospective candidates will be held at 5:30pm on Monday, August 31 in the Tuckey Room at the City of Mandurah.

Eligible voters must be enrolled on the Electoral Roll by Friday, August 28. Contact the WA Electoral Commission on 13 63 06 for further information
