Daniel Singleton is working tirelessly to help the City of Bunbury and the local community.

After growing up and studying in Australind, Mr Singleton spent some time travelling around the world.

The 33-year-old now serves as the Director of Marketing and Advertising for one of the CBD's most popular bars and restaurants, Common Ground.

Assisted by owners Adam Bromely and Wes Cornish, he succeeded in changing the establishment's look and feel.

Announcing his decision to run for council back in July, the candidate wants to help Bunbury to reach its true potential.

"Bunbury has all of the amenities and functions that Perth has, without the rat race that goes with it," he said.

"Instead of holding a big event each month, I believe Bunbury should be hosting something exciting each week.

"That would help us to advertise Bunbury as 'The City of Events'."

If elected, Mr Singleton will strive to create more links between the city and the community.

"Whereas most other council members and candidates are focusing on individual topics, I am running a much broader campaign," he said.

"I want to see the people that run the town and the people that live in the town feel more connected to one another.

"I would love to see the community become more involved in the decisions made by council."

Mr Singleton hopes this year's elections will encourage more community members to express their ideas.

"Theoretically, we could have six new councillors very soon," he said.

"With that many new councillors, Bunbury would get the chance to go in a whole new direction."

Communities across Western Australia will head to the polls on Saturday, October 19.
