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,
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.
Want to find out more?
