Councillor Fair

Would you stand for it?

Find out about being a Cornwall Councillor on Saturday 26th January 2013 from 9.30am - 3.30pm at County Hall, Truro


If you care about the area that you live or work in and the issues facing local people, have you considered standing to be a Cornwall Councillor?

As an elected Councillor you will have a number of roles to juggle which will involve balancing the needs and interests of your local community; your political group (if you have one) and the Council. You will be involved in the delivery and monitoring of a range of Council services and have a role in determining how they are provided, funded and prioritised.

On Saturday 26 January 2013 we are holding a Councillor Fair event for anyone interested in becoming a Cornwall Councillor. You are invited to:-

  • Find out about the role of the Council and plans for the future via a presentation by the Chief Executive of the Council
  • Take the opportunity to informally chat to Councillors about their role or ask them a question during our Question Time slot
  • Speak to Council staff from the elections service, democratic services, information services, localism, learning and development and equality and diversity regarding how we support you in your role as a Councillor
  • Take a guided tour around New County Hall building to view the facilities
  • Meet your political group (if you have one) privately during the afternoon if you wish.

We will send a finalised agenda nearer the time to everyone who has registered. Alternatively please telephone 01872 322108 to book your place.
