Serve your community

If you’re thinking of running for local office, part of the decision-making process may include considering the role you will play, how best you can serve your community and the impact you will have as an elected official.

As a locally elected official, you will be entrusted with making decisions that directly affect the daily lives of residents, families, local business owners and many others in the community. It is important to think about how you can best serve your community if you are elected and the expectations of being a locally elected official.

An effective local government requires dedicated, ethical and informed leaders who are committed to their communities. Perhaps you want to become an elected official so you can:

  • be actively involved in the local democratic process
  • contribute your experience and knowledge to your community
  • address various issues in your community and/or lead change in your community.
