Can you ‘lead the way’ for your community?
The Armidale regional community needs capable people with passion and commitment to nominate as candidates in the upcoming local council elections and to provide civic leadership for the next three years.
The new Armidale Regional Council has many accomplishments, including:
supporting a wide range of community projects that will contribute towards building more vibrant, sustainable and inclusive local communities;
supporting and commencing eleven major infrastructure projects that will deliver long-term economic and social benefits to the community;
progressing four large capital works programs – relocation of the Armidale War Memorial Library, construction of a new Regional Landfill, construction of the new Kolora Aged Care Facility, and the refurbishment and extension of Armidale Regional Airport.
“Council is pleased with what has been achieved. However, there’s still a way to go to meet the challenges of the community. Holding elections is a major milestone for Armidale Regional Council and the community,” said Administrator Dr Ian Tiley.
“As a councillor for over 20 years I will be pleased to speak with persons considering standing for council to discuss the role, required time commitment or any other relevant matters.”
Elections will be held on Saturday 9 September 2017.
Energy and a ‘can do’ desire to get things done and make a difference will be important qualities for councillors who need to be inclusive, approachable and willing to work across communities to create a prosperous future for the Armidale Regional Council area.
Nominations for candidates open on Monday 31 July and close at 12 noon on Wednesday 9 August 2017.
