John Bromham has formally announced his decision to run in this year's Harvey Shire Council election.
Living in Leschenault for over 21 years, Mr Bromham has been involved in an array of community activities.
Mr Bromham served as a Harvey Shire councillor from 2003 to 2010, before leaving due to work commitments.
Among his many achievements during his time on council, he and his colleagues sought funding from Worsley to place tiles on the Leschenault Leisure Centre's swimming pool.
"I have the time and the passion to work hard and to ensure our communities are well placed in the future. I also have a demonstrated ability to negotiate positive outcomes for the shire," he said.
"I am running for council because I want to give something back. I will work on facts to make rational decisions.
"We have a great community, and this was demonstrated when we raised $25,000 for a Parkfield student with cancer in just six weeks.
"One person can do little, but a community working together will shine."
If elected, Mr Bromham will strive to improve recreational facilities and amenities at public locations.
"The future is uncertain. I believe we need to plan and organise infrastructure so it is resilient in the face of change, while consulting with State Government and our communities to achieve sustainable outcomes," he said.
"Council needs to lobby the government for sustainable industries that provide job security over a broad range of educational standards.
"I also believe we need to maintain and improve our assets (roads, buildings, sporting facilities etc.)."
