What does being an elected official entail?

 As an 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 elected.

Things to consider:

  • Why do I want to be an elected official?
  • How will I best contribute to my community?
  • What are my objectives for holding office and do they reflect the needs of my community?

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 area
  • lead change in your community.

What are some ways to prepare for elected office?

These include:

  • looking at the CSRD's key planning documents and reports
  • attending CSRD's board meetings to learn about priority issues and projects
  • reviewing the CSRD's website to understand its key priorities and initiatives
  • attending neighbourhood community meetings and get to know key groups in your community such as the Chamber of Commerce, service groups, or social agencies.
