Mansfield District Council is holding two events at the Civic Centre for anyone interested in finding out more about becoming a councillor or the executive mayor.

The next elections will be held in May 2015 when 36 district council seats will be contested along with the position of executive mayor.

The prospective mayor and councillor evenings on Wednesday, 12th November at 6pm and and on 5th February, are being organised by the Democratic Services team and will explain the process involved in standing for election, and the role of a councillor.

Managing director and returning officer of Mansfield District Council, Ruth Marlow, said: “Councillors come from all walks of life, age groups and backgrounds and play a key role in shaping the future of their local communities.”
