County Councillor information event

County Councillor information event

Residents interested in supporting their local communities are invited to come along to an event aimed at those thinking of becoming a county councillor.

Taking place online, the free event will give prospective candidates the opportunity to find out more about the role of councillors, the work they do with their local communities, and also meet current County Councillors.

The event comes ahead of County Council elections due to be held next May.

Cllr David Finch, Leader of Essex County Council said: “Essex is one of the biggest council areas in the country, and councillors play an absolutely vital role in supporting our rich and diverse communities across the county.

“While being a councillor is hugely demanding, the ability to make a difference and give something back to your local community is a wonderful opportunity.

“We have councillors of all ages and backgrounds, and through this event, we hope to give a little bit more information about what is involved in the day to day work of being a county councillor.”

The event will take place on Tuesday 17 November at 6.30pm via Zoom.
