Are you interested in becoming a Conservative Councillor?
Councillors are the voice of the local community, represent local views and interests and have a duty to promote the social and economic well-being of the community.
The South Northamptonshire Conservative Association are looking for potential candidates to contest seats in South Northants Council and Northampton Borough Council in 2018.
Could you be a Councillor?
- Do you QUALIFY to stand for the Council?
Do you live, own or rent property or work in the District or Borough Boundary? Please click here to see the boundary of District. To see the full District click on the ‘Boundaries’ icon on the left hand side and select ‘Districts’ or to see the individual Wards click on ‘District Wards’. You can live, work, own or rent property anywhere within the District to qualify to stand for any of the seats, you do not need to live/work in the particular Ward you are interested in standing in. It is also preferable, but not essential, that you are a paid up Conservative Member and even better if you have experience as an activist.
- Do you WANT to stand as a local Councillor?
Being a local Councillor is a big responsibility, to find out more about what is involved in being a Councillor check out the following website: https://beacouncillor.co.uk/. Equally, if you would like to speak to a sitting Councillor about the role then please send me your details and I will arrange for someone to call you for a casual chat. We are also planning a ‘Find out More’ meeting, so if this is something you are interested in, whether it’s this year or in the future, then please let me know so I can make sure you are invited.
- The Time Commitment…
As well as the commitment of being a Councillor if you are successfully elected, hard work is needed up poll day to ensure we retain this Conservative seat. Anyone hoping to be our candidate must be prepared to campaign hard, delivering leaflets and knocking on doors with a team of Conservative Activists.
