Do you find yourself expressing a view on local Council issues and feeling frustrated that you want change?
Then why not do something about it?
It’s clear that many young people feel alienated by politics and see it as ‘nothing to do with them’ or even relevent to their lives. It’s also a fact that there are three times as many men than women representing local residents as Councillors on Derby City Council.
We want to encourgage younger people and women to consider becoming local councillors but we are are also looking for local people of any age, background or gender to consider it too and get more involved in their local area.
That is why we’re hosting an informal ‘meet and greet’ on: Saturday March 4th, 10am to 12pm at The Council House, Corporation Street, Derby.
There are no ‘qualifications’ required to be a Councillor and it offers an allowance of around £10,000 per year but, more importantly, presents a chance to make a real difference in your local community.
You can stand for election at 18 and the role of Councillor offers an allowance of around £10,000 per year but, more importantly, presents a chance to make a real difference in your local community.
We’d love to see you at our event – you do not have to be a party member or even consider yourself a ‘Conservative’. If you have any questions, please email us, firstname.lastname@example.org
