Saturday 16 January, 10am – 11.30am
A livestreamed event for anyone interested in becoming a Councillor
Cornwall needs all kinds of people to stand to become a Councillor. The qualities you need are a desire and passion to make a difference and improve the community you represent.
On Saturday 16 January we are holding a special ‘live event’ so that people interested in standing for election can learn more about what it is like to be a Councillor.
The event is hosted by the Chairman of Cornwall Council, Councillor Hilary Frank and contributors include the Chief Executive, Kate Kennally, the Service Director for Assurance,
Melanie O’Sullivan and Sarah Mason the Executive Officer for CALC the Cornwall Association of Local Councils.
At the event you will hear about the Council, it’s work and the challenges it faces. We will also tell you about the role of a Councillor and the support that enables Councillors to carry out their role alongside a busy personal life. Sarah Mason will explain the role of a Town or Parish Councillor and the important part they play in their local communities.
There will be opportunity for you to put your questions live (in writing) via the question and answer portal to a panel of serving Councillors.
