The Local Government Information Unit is running their councillor awards again. The categories can be found here, and the application form can be found here. Do any Reading councillors deserve a nomination?
"Councillors are community leaders. They connect individual citizens and local government, highlighting problems within the community. This contribution to their wards should be recognised, and their work celebrated. That’s why the LGiU and CCLA will again be running the C’llr Achievement Awards.
Recognising excellence is an important part of any sector development. It spreads best practice, rewards those who go the extra distance and highlights individual brilliance.
Nominations for this year’s C’llr Achievement Awards 2011 are open now. All information regarding the awards, including how to make a nomination, can be found on the LGiU website.
Let us know what your councillor, or if you’re a councillor or officer your colleagues, are doing to create a better community. Entry is free and anyone can make a nomination. Self-nominations, however, are not allowed. The closing date is 31 December 2010.
We’ve already had a very healthy response. If you haven’t done so already, do please join the communities above and nominate someone. Councillors are the unsung heroes of our democracy. We’d be very grateful if you’d help us shout for them."
