Welcome to new councillors

Congratulations on being elected as a new councillor from myself and everyone at the LGA. I hope you find your time as an elected representative as rewarding as I have, and the LGA a useful resource. I like to think of us as a family and, like all families, we are here to help you as you take on the role of councillor.
