Latrobe Council Meet the Candidates

Local Government has the biggest impact on your daily life in so many ways. To
achieve positive outcomes, a team of Councillors is elected by you.
The role of the Councillor is to provide leadership and guidance on policy, plans,
programs and appropriately resource their delivery through the General Manager. This
includes understanding complex issues and at times competing priorities for the
benefit of the whole community.
The Local Government Election has resulted in 15 candidates putting their hand up to
fill nine (9) positions on Latrobe Council, inclusive of Mayor and Deputy Mayor.
While some of these candidates are well known in the community, others are not.

Business Association (KaLIBA) on Wednesday, 5 October from 7:00pm at the Latrobe
Memorial Hall, Gilbert Street, Latrobe.
All candidates have been invited to make a short presentation on their aspirations and
priorities for the Latrobe Council area and provide an insight on what they will bring to
the table if elected for the next four years.
A Q&A session will be held at the conclusion of the forum, after all candidates have
spoken.
If you would like to attend the forum, please RSVP by 4:30pm on Monday 3 October via
