Councillor Davod Harrison

So…. You Want To Be A Councillor?

There are a very large number of council seats up for grabs in Totton & Marchwood at elections in May of next year.

Naturally, as a Liberal Democrat, I will be hoping that my party stands as many candidates as possible and meets with great success.

However, whether you want to join any political party or not, I think that our communities are best served by having lots of candidates, especially female ones, younger ones, those from ethnic minorities and generally people from all groups that are currently under represented.

I always make the offer of being prepared to meet up with anyone who would like to know more about becoming a Councillor… what getting elected involves, what sort of commitment is involved, what are the expectations in terms of the representative role and case-work.

You can also decide whether to join and campaign with a political party, or to run as an independent.

Whether you are a complete “newbie” or a disillusioned Member, seeking a fresh start… I am always happy to talk. Just send me a private message and let me know. I am good at keeping things confidential, if you wish!
