Become an Elected Member

If you want to make a difference in your community and have a say in local decision-making, stand for election as a Local Government Councillor. 

There are many benefits from being involved in your local Council; namely the sense of satisfaction you will achieve from serving your community and being involved in making important decisions for the future. This short video outlines the benefits of being an Elected Member.

The importance of the role of our Elected Members cannot be underestimated.  It involves a strong commitment to achieve effective local government, which improves the quality of life in your community.  An effective Council is essential and requires teamwork and dedication from all Elected Members.

The decision to stand for Council is a very personal one and you must consider your own circumstances and decide whether you are able to make the commitment required.  The City of Mandurah encourages people from diverse backgrounds to nominate for election.
