Council Election AM: Angle 2:

An information seminar will be held at Maroochydore today to encourage locals to run for council.

The state government event will give prospective candidates an insight into the roles and responsibilities of councillors and outline what is expected of local elected officials.

Local Government and Regional Services Deputy Director-General, Stephen Johnston, says the seminar will give people a realistic insight into the job requirements.

Stephen Johnston: “I think it’s important that they understand the time and effort that will be required for them to be a successful councilor and also an understanding of the legal requirements and aspects are of being a councilor because, clearly, governed by the local government act there are certain regulatory aspects of the role that they need to understand.”
