The 2021 NC elections are coming. YOU SHOULD RUN!
We’re looking for a few good neighbors who are conscientious, community-minded, and passionate about our community.
You can run for elected office at the local level representing your neighbors. All board seats are up for election on May 18, 2021.
Anyone 18 or older who lives, works, owns property, or is otherwise invested in our neighborhood’s success is eligible to serve.
File by March 2 to run for a seat on Empowerment Congress Southwest and the chance to help shape decisions on land use, housing, homelessness, transportation, the environment, arts, and everything else that affects us.
Terms are two years, in which you’ll directly advise the City Council, Mayor’s Office, and all other City agencies on matters affecting our community. See our website, https://empowerla.org/elections/, and the City Clerk’s for more info. Don’t hesitate to contact current Boardmembers for insights on our responsibilities, privileges, and time commitments: Board@SouthwestNC.org.
