District Councillors wanted

Become a councillor and Change Your World

East Hampshire District Council is calling for new councillors with the desire to change their world and the business sense to make it happen.

With an election looming next May, EHDC is looking to attract councillors with the ambition to take on the council’s vision and the skills to make it reality.

The campaign to recruit new councillors begins with two drop-in meetings on October 24 and 27 at the council offices in Petersfield, where prospective candidates can find out what it takes to be a councillor.

Sandy Hopkins, EHDC Chief Executive, said: “We are looking for people with a broad range of abilities and community interests, people who are looking for a chance to use their skills for the benefit of the community; people who want to put something back.

“With the unprecedented pressures on public sector funding councils must be ever more business-like and professional if they are to thrive.

“EHDC is setting out a unique way forward for local government, a new way of running a council with the focus on innovation and income generation. We have ambitious plans and we need councillors with the business skills to see it through. We need a new kind of councillor for a new kind of council.”

Residents with the energy and passion to make a difference in their area should come to the council on Friday 24 October, 2-5pm, Monday 27 October, 6.30-9.30pm or Tuesday 18 November, 6-9pm, and find out how they can make a difference in their community and change their world.
