Think about being a councillor…

I was pleased to hear about the ongoing campaign in the East of England to encourage more people to become local councillors ahead of next year’s May local elections. This is an extremely worthwhile campaign especially in the wake of David Cameron’s plans for the Big Society and the devolution of power to local authorities.

Local councillors have a significant say in the administration of local affairs and often a considerable impact on them too. The campaign is holding open day events so that people can go along and find out further details; have a look at http://beacouncillor.eelga.gov.uk/.
