Council Elections


Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council (CGRC) is encouraging passionate people with enthusiasm and commitment to nominate as candidates in the upcoming local council elections and help lead and continue the work already started by our council.

‘At Council, we have already accomplished a lot, and we are proud of what we have achieved, however there is still a long and exciting journey to go to meet the challenges of our new community. Administrator Stephen Sykes said.

Energy, commitment and a desire to get things done and make a real difference are important qualities for councillors. Being inclusive, approachable and willing to work across communities to create a prosperous future for the entire Council area will be essential qualities. Our Councillors will need to be strategic in outlook and be able to balance good local outcomes with sound decision making to bring about long-lasting community benefits.’
