Unley will need 6 new Councillors

and may get even more. If you have ever thought of giving it a go there may never be a better time than in this year's election. The current Council of 13 has already been reduced to 11 by the resignations of Clyne and Koumi. While the rest of us are managing pretty  well many are not seeking re-election and at least 2 are running for mayor. Unley has announced that their first session for hopeful candidates will be held in the Council Chambers on Tuesday July 10th at 6:30pm. You will get an opportunity to learn about Unley Council and the expectations and responsibilities of being on Council. This role suits people of all ages, employed or retired regardless of gender or race. You get about $16,000 per year including free childcare if you need it. You need to work hard for this but most of the work can be done when you have time and not at a particular time. All up 15 plus hours per week or more depending on time and energy. Why not give it a go!

    Hi Jennie. Yes, Unley will need at least 6 new Councillors.
    However, I believe that there will be 7-9 new faces on Council.
    Hopefully 50% will be female.
    It will be the biggest refresh of Council in 20 years.

  2. Are you prepared to say who will be most likely to win back their seats?

    Definitely you Jennie!
