WHILE voters may have their focus firmly set on this weekends state election, a political position of a different kind will also soon be opening up soon.
Applications are now open to appoint Frankston’s next youth mayor.
The role includes advocating for projects that will benefit youth in the Frankston municipality and working with local council.
The term runs for one year, and one candidate will be chosen.
The youth mayor role was established last year, when Gerard Felipe was appointed as the inaugural representative in the role.
His term is set will expire at the beginning of next year, and councillors will vote for a new candidate at the February ordinary meeting.
Candidates must be between 18 and 21 years of age. Applications close on 30 November.
