Three Griffith residents hope to provide a mix of experience and fresh perspectives as they begin their campaign to represent their community.
Louis Toscan and Cassandra Campbell-Smith have joined Councillor Christine Stead's ticket and are branding themselves as 'the Approachables'.
Cr Stead has been around the council table for 17 years, and in that time said she had only missed one meeting.
"I am approachable, available to anyone who has a difficulty or has something to say for the betterment of the community which I cherish," Cr Stead said.
In that time, councillors had be posed many challenges and had been able to see the city grow.
"Water, jobs, housing are the challenges and together with the COVID-19 pandemic are all matters that will require addressing and I consider that my experience allows me to represent the community of Griffith as we move forward.
"I am a familiar face in Griffith, well-known and can be and am contacted by people who have a problem or have ideas and are looking for a better community."
Cr Stead is also the tourism and events committee chairwoman.
"I've been on the committee for as long as I've been on council," she said.
"It's one of the key growth areas that we can capitalise on in the future, especially domestically as there's no international arrivals to Griffith."
Cr Stead said she was happy that Miss Campbell-Smith, a former Young Citizen of the Year in 2011 and Mr Toscan had agreed to join her ticket.
Mr Toscan, a former rice farmer from Yenda now living in Yoogali, has been a member of Yenda Rotary for 31 years and wants to represent the entire community as a councillor.
"I'm looking forward to the progress of the city and I want to help tackle the challenges over the next three years," he said.
He wants to see more housing for Yenda as well as a footpath linking Yoogali and Griffith.
If elected, Miss Campbell-Smith would be one of the youngest people to be a Griffith councillor.
As a professional advocate for people often left without a voice, she wants to offer her skills to all members of the community, no matter their circumstances.
"I know there are things people desperately need and want to put forward, I'm here to advocate for them,: she said.
Miss Campbell-Smith said she wanted to be the person that people who would never approach council, actually approached to talk about the issues they wanted to see council address.
