Become an IfF candidate in 2019

 

Independents for Frome are going to contest the town council elections in May 2019. To do this we need 17 independent candidates. Some of our current councillors will be up for selection but some are standing down, so now is your chance to become involved.

Do you care about Frome and what happens in and to our town?

 

If so, you should be standing for the town council!

 

Do you have experience or expertise that could be useful to the town?

If so, you should be standing for the town council!

 

Do you appreciate what having an ambitious independent town council has done for the town in the last eight years?

If so, you should be standing for the town council!

 

Do you think the direction and focus of the town council needs to change?

If so, you should be standing for the town council!

 

 

Anyone who lives in Frome and is registered to vote can apply to become an IfF candidate. We only ask that you care about Frome and that you can sign up to our ways of working. Your political leanings or affiliations are not important and you don’t have to agree with everything IfF councils have done so far.

 

It’s dead easy to apply. There are two parts. Firstly, you need to provide us with some basic details:

 

  1. Your name
  2. Your address and contact details
  3. Your age

 

Then we ask you to answer these four questions:

 

  1. When and why did you move to Frome?
  2. Why would you want to be a Frome Town Councillor?
  3. What are your interest and expertise?
  4. Can you commit to the current IfF ways of working?

 

We are planning to hold the final selection on Saturday 19th January 2019 and it’s important that you could be available in Frome on that day.

 

Put your answers on no more than two sides of A4 and send it to 2019@iffrome.org.uk

 

If you’d like to chat to someone before you choose to apply drop us an email at 2019@iffrome.org.uk

 

If you’re in two minds, just remember that it takes people stepping up to make IfF happen. If you think it’s a good thing to have an ambitious, competent and independent town council you need to help make it happen.

 

If you really can’t be a candidate but support the kind of things IfF has done so far, or could do in the future, there are plenty of other ways you could help. Check out how to get involved.
