The new West Suffolk Council is being created in April with the first elections to the new Council in May 2019 and we have been organising events for candidates standing at the election. This is part of our ‘make your mark’ campaign which aims to encourage people to stand for election, to support them through the election process and will also raise awareness of the election and how electors can take part in the democratic process.
This information event is an opportunity for prospective candidates to hear about the new Council, the elections process and to hear from experienced councillors about the realities of being a ward councillor in West Suffolk. Similar events are being offered to political parties and this event is being held for prospective candidates that are not standing for a political party or cannot attend their party event.
Come along at 6pm on 8 March to West Suffolk House, Western Way, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 3YU.
