James Lee up for re-election in this year's Dardanup Shire Council election

A handful of Shire of Dardanup community members, including councillor James Lee, are gearing up for this month's Local Government Elections.

Mr Lee formerly served as the board chairman for Community Home Care and Relay for Life - Bunbury and South-West.

Nowadays, he enjoys juggling the responsibilities of a councillor, a Justice of the Peace, and a school board chair.

Last month, Mr Lee celebrated the official opening of Glen Huon Primary School's new Early Intervention Centre.

The $1.5 million facility provides important health and well-being services to children and parents in the region.

Along with supporting a variety of community groups, Mr Lee also assists the police and the neighbourhood watch.

He was first elected to council in 2011, before being re-elected four years later.

Mr Lee received 17.64 per cent of the vote (1,361) back in 2015.

He and 10 other candidates - Peter Robinson, Patricia Perks, Stacey Gillespie, Graham Lord, Greg Homer, Annette Webster, Ian Hayward, Dudley Greathead, Mark Hutchinson, and Shah Kalakhel - recently submitted their nominations to run for council.

If re-elected, Mr Lee will strive to help create a "safer, friendlier, and more liveable community".
