Would you like to be Luton councillor?
Luton Borough Council is hosting a short presentation on the 13 October at 6 pm in the Town Hall for locals to ask questions about Councillor’s roles. Current councillors will also share their experiences of representing people in Luton, and how to make a positive impact on the life of residents.
Local Councillors are elected by the community to decide how the council should carry out its various activities. One of the key roles of a councillor is that of representing those who have voted for them. According to Robin Porter, Luton’s Returning Officer, “Being a local councillor is an important and significant role in the life of our town. They play a massive part in ensuring local democracy is strong and vibrant. With their variety of backgrounds and understanding of what matters to people in Luton, they are well placed to make a positive impact on the life of residents….”. He added, “If you would like to be part of Luton’s exciting future, come along to this event and find out more.”
Have you ever wanted to get something done for your community? Have you ever thought that the council could spend money better? Have you ever wanted to improve public services?
If the answer is yes, then have you ever thought about becoming a city councillor?
