Local Government is an important part of the democratic framework of Australia, and the level with the closest contact with the community, or at least it should be. The community elects their Council Members every four years and the next general Council elections will conclude in November, 2014. If you have an interest in these elections either with a slight or “major” desire to nominate, or are just interested in the process, there will be a community forum held for the Norwood Payneham and St Peters Council area on May 19th. The following link will provide more information.
