COUNCIL elections are back on track after COVID-19 threw a spanner in the works not once but twice, leaving councillors in the hot seat a year longer than expected.
Tamworth residents will hit the ballot box on December 4, and the Leader plans to give the public the best picture of each candidate, their policy platforms and passions.
With a little bit of a twist.
The Leader has asked each election candidate it profiles to bring an item that means something to them; whether it be personal, symbolic or representative of a professional achievement, and give the public an explanation why.
Tamworth Regional Council is undivided, which means it has no wards and councillors are elected to represent the entire local government area.
There are nine seats up for the taking, including the top job, as mayor Col Murray announced he will retire this year after his ninth term in public office.
