Why councillors are important
Councillors play a key role in the borough:
- they are the voice of the community representing local people and communities
- they are champions for users of local services
- they help shape future services for the benefit of local people working in partnership with other organisations, such as the police, voluntary community sector, health and other public bodies and, of course, the private sector
- they play a major role in making local government work by developing a better quality of life for the people of Poole.
