Get Involved - Become a Local Councillor

Get involved - become a local Councillor

It might be the level of Council Tax you get charged, developments that get approved that you don't agree with or the state of local parks. Whatever you would like to see changed in Sutton, you can be part of the team that delivers that change by standing to be a Councillor. 

There are many local people with local knowledge who can use their skills to the advantage of all of us who live in the Borough.

Local Councillors are drawn from the community and receive an allowance for the time they spend governing Sutton.

Sutton Conservatives want to plan for the next Council administration, and we are looking for people to get involved in this exciting and rewarding task. We want to involve a cross section of our local community and are inviting people who feel they could make a contribution to meet with us. In the first stages, we will invite you for an informal chat and this will give us the opportunity to explain what this commitment will involve and answer any questions you might have.
 
Political experience and involvement is not important. To be a Conservative Councillor you must of course support the aims and objectives of the Conservative Party, but you will not be required to know party policy like the back of your hand. All we ask is that you are determined to make change for the better in Sutton if you are elected as a Conservative Councillor.

You can find out more about being a councillor on the non-partisan website: http://www.beacouncillor.org.uk/ or by visisting the website of the Conservative Councillors Association (CCA) at: http://www.conservativecouncillors.com/.

The next Local Elections are in May 2018, so plenty of time for you to get used to the role of being a candidate and become familiar with what is expected of you if you win.
