Are you considering standing for election to the Tasman District Council this year? 

Anyone keen to learn more about what is involved in representing the community as the Mayor, a Councillor or community board member, is invited to one of three information sessions this month.

The sessions will outline the role and business of the Council and what the Mayor, Councillors and community board members do. They will also provide an overview of the election process, including important information about nominations and campaigning.

An outgoing Councillor will be available to answer your questions and offer a first-hand perspective.
