Stand for council - Campaigning

Introduction by Dr Katrena Stephenson CEO, Local Government Association Tasmania

There have been changes to the Local Government (General Regulations) 2015  relating to Local Government election campaigns.

Running for election requires development of a campaign. Our video presentation will describe most of what you need to know about campaigning. To summarise we recommend that you:

  • build your profile early - plan the campaign well ahead of time, including use of the media at such busy times;
  • try and convey who you are and what you want to achieve as a council; and
  • be honest in your messaging through understanding what councils and councillors can and can’t do.
