There can be many reasons why you might want to be a councillor. You may be concerned about your community and want to help improve it by:
- making sure people get the right services
- making sure people’s views are heard and taken into account
- using your business or professional skills
You may be concerned about one particular issue in your area or just want to follow your political beliefs.
