People considering running in local elections now have access to resources that provide information about the roles and responsibilities of elected officials.
Educational videos and brochures are available online, at local government candidate information sessions and at orientations for newly elected officials. These new resources will help people make informed decisions about running for a local government office. General information about expectations of locally elected officials, their roles and responsibilities and about how local governments make decisions is available through these new resources.
