Introduction

Have you thought about improving the community you live in and influencing decisions in your area? If so, you may want to consider becoming a County Councillor.

A County Councillor is someone who is elected by the people to one of the electoral divisions in Somerset to represent them on the Council. As a member of the County Council, he or she has to consider not just the interests of their local electorate but what is in the best interests of the county of Somerset as a whole.
