Wollondilly Community First (WCF) has endorsed two new candidates, to lead its two east ward teams for the local government elections in September.

Shire residents Paul Rogers and Dave Clayton will join mayoral candidate and former councillor Ray Law on the slate.

WCF president Bob Rogers said the provision of infrastructure was a key community concern throughout Wollondilly. .

"Dave Clayton, a career specialist in industrial management, also active in the shire's Men's Shed and other community programmes, will be an asset to the council," he said.

"The state of the roads and memories of the dire 2019/20 bush-fires are both hot issues in the shire, and road safety expert and decorated fire-fighter Paul Rogers will help us prosecute the case for change."

Mr Clayton and Mr Rogers will each lead a team of candidates - most of whom have already been selected - on the WCF Wollondilly east ward slate at the upcoming election.

Mayoral candidate Ray Law said he was delighted with the quality of candidates WCF was attracting to its banner.

"With people like Dave and Paul on the team, we'll be offering voters a broad well of expertise and experience," he said.

"Their teams of candidates will be announced when the time is right.

"Although our card for east ward is pretty full, we're still looking for candidates to stand in north ward. I encourage solid, community-minded locals, in Picton and points west and north, who have no political party affiliation, but useful experience and expertise, to get in touch".
