Nothing is forever and regardless of how you feel, how hard you’ve worked to get elected and how much you are enjoying your role as a councillor, there will come a time when you are ready to try something else.
How can you make sure there are other women ready to take up the role? What happens when you decide that you don’t want to stand again? Or if you are not re-elected? How do you continue to make a contribution to your community?
