Thinking of standing in Garff in the forthcoming Local Authority General Election?  We have nine seats to fill, three each in the Wards of Laxey, Lonan, and Maughold. You can find out more about the roles and responsibilities of a Commissioner in the link to the government document below…better still why not pop in to the Commissioners’ Office at 35 New Road in Laxey and speak to Martin or Pete about what you’d be involved with as a Commissioner. We can also arrange for a meeting with a current Commissioner so that you can really get the full picture.
As a Commissioner you’ll be involved in shaping the future of your community, making sure your community gets the right services, representing the views of local people.
You’ll be involved in engaging with, supporting, and leading your community: it’s a special role, one that involves making often difficult decisions, reviewing local authority and government policy, and bringing forward projects for new public facilities.
If you want to find out more and discuss the role in more detail contact the Commissioners on 861241 or via Martin or Pete will give you lots of information and can arrange for you to speak to a current Commissioner to give you the full picture of what the role entails.
