2021 Council Election – Becoming a Councillor

Are you passionate about what happens in your local community? Take the opportunity to have an impact on your community by standing to become a councillor. 

September 2021 will see the election of a new Warrumbungle Shire Council and residents should start thinking now about their involvement in the process.

The Warrumbungle Shire covers over 12,000km2 and is home to about 9,500 residents. The Council itself employs over 200 staff and has an annual budget of around $45million.

Being a councillor is an important role and a great opportunity to make a difference. Councils are responsible for making significant decisions that have a far-reaching impact on their community.

“Becoming a councillor is a great opportunity to get involved in the local community”, said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Ambrose Doolan. “If you have been thinking about becoming a councillor now is the time to put your hand up to represent your local community.” 

“Communities get the best outcomes from Council when their diverse nature is represented to give a range of perspectives and experience”, said Cr Doolan.

“Nominations to stand in the local government elections close in August, so now is your time to nominate to represent your community”, concluded Cr Doolan. 

Information about the role of councillors is available from www.olg.nsw.gov.au and on Council’s website at www.warrumbungle.nsw.gov.au/our-council/elections
