Could you become a councillor?

If you care about the area that you live or work in and the issues facing local people, you could become a councillor.

Local elections for Horsham District Council will be held in May 2015 and we are currently looking for suitable people to stand for election.

Councillors are elected to the local council to represent their local community, so they must either live or work in the area.  It is a uniquely rewarding experience where you can make a real difference.

Conservatives across Britain are working hard to build a country where people have more opportunity and power over their lives; a country where families are stronger and society is more responsible; and a Britain which is safer and greener. Conservative councils can be trusted to deliver high quality, value for money public services. You can help be a part of this by standing as a Conservative candidate in Horsham.

To be eligible you must be:

1.     A British subject or a citizen of the Irish Republic or the EU and resident in the UK.

2.     At least eighteen years old on the day you are nominated.

3.     Either on the electoral register for the council area in which you are seeking election, or have lived or worked in that council area for at least the last twelve months.

Perhaps you are already involved in your local community and want to take the next step. Or you may be looking for a worthwhile and rewarding way to help your neighbourhood. Either way, if you would be interested in becoming a councillor, please contact us.
