Dalyellup resident Christine Terrantroy has thrown her hat in the ring ahead of this year's Local Government Elections.
Mrs Terrantroy is looking to fill one of the five Capel Shire Council seats up for grabs in October.
She began a Bachelor of Education at the University of Notre Dame (Broome Campus) in 2004, before graduating in Fremantle three years later.
Since moving with her family to Dalyellup in 2011, Mrs Terrantroy has been involved in numerous roles and committees.
She is now the vice president and publicity officer for the Country Women's Association's Capel Branch.
Mrs Terrantroy told the Mail she was looking forward to her first election campaign.
The candidate, school teacher, volunteer, wife, and mother is committed to making a difference within the community.
"I believe it's essential that councillors listen to and respond to the needs/requests of the communities they represent," she said.
"I have always cared about the environment, resources, and community.
"I want to contribute positively to the Shire of Capel. I also want to represent my community with honesty and integrity."
This year's elections will be held on Saturday, October 19.
