Read the latest City Limits Magazine column by CEO Mark Searle.
This article appears in City Limits magazine - Issue 46 - October 2014.
Welcome to this special election edition of your community magazine, City Limits.
In this issue you will find important information about the upcoming local government elections and how you can have a say on the future of the City of Marion.
The voting process is explained in the election feature which begins on page 10. This section also includes profiles of the candidates and maps of our six wards, so you can see who is nominating in your area.
That we have such a diverse range of candidates speaks volumes for the strength and vibrancy of our community.
There has been considerable promotion by the Local Government Association of SA for the November elections, including the use of illustrated characters, dubbed “Little Locals”, which you will probably have seen on posters, banners and flyers – and which also make an appearance in this publication.
Please remember that while voting is not compulsory, local government plays a vital role in delivering the facilities and services that we enjoy every day, so I encourage you to take the time to elect your community leaders.
In addition to reading about the upcoming election, I hope you enjoy the stories about our community that appear in this magazine. I am constantly inspired by the great things residents do - from writing books about local history, volunteering and devoting their spare time to improving the natural environment - their achievements are the stuff that turns a city into a community.
