Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman is encouraging local women to put their hand up to run at the September council elections.

At the moment women represent 31 per cent of all NSW Councillors and Ms. Tuckerman says the State Government is committed to increasing the number of female councillors serving their local communities and achieving greater diversity in our councils.

More than 30 workshops will be taking place across the State in the next few months to assist more women to run as a candidate.

For further information about these workshops head to the women for election website.
