Passionate people interested in standing for Somerset County Council's elections in May are invited to attend welcome events taking place on 30th January and 1st March from 6pm to 8pm at County Hall.
Held at County Hall in Taunton, the welcome events will be a chance to find out more about the role of a County Councillor and what is involved in standing to become one.
There are 55 seats available to be filled in the local elections on 4 May, each a chance to have a big impact in the local community and get involved in the huge range of services provided by the Council.
Applications from people from different kinds of backgrounds are welcome; you don't have to belong to a political party or have previous experience. People who can bring their life experiences into the council and bring the voice of the local community into its policy making and decision processes are sought.
In return for their work with local communities and attending meetings and events, councillors will be given allowances, provided with IT equipment and offered training to help them in their role.
To register for your place at the County Council's welcome events please contact the Community Governance Team at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01823 357628.
More information can also be found on the Council's website
The deadline for nomination papers for the County Council election is on 4th April 2017.
