2019/20 Municipal Year Mayor of Seaford: Councillor Nazish Adil
The newly elected Seaford Town Councillors met for their first Full Council meeting on Thursday 16th May after the recent elections.
The first order of business was the appointment of a Mayor of Seaford for the 2019-20 Municipal Year; Councillor Nazish Adil was elected to fulfill this role for the coming year.
Past Mayor, Councillor Linda Wallraven, presented Councillor Adil with the Mayoral chain. In return on behalf of the Council and the town, Councillor Adil made a proclamation of gratitude to Councillor Wallraven for her dedication and hard work whilst serving as Mayor of Seaford.
Councillor Jim Lord was subsequently appointed as Deputy Mayor of Seaford for the coming Municipal Year.
Seaford Town Council wishes the best of luck to the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Young Mayor in their new roles and looks forward to the year ahead.
Mayor Adil has selected The Youth Counselling Project and The Down Syndrome Development Trust to support during her Mayoral year.
Details of the Mayoral Engagements and Events are reported in the Mayor’s Report at each Full Council meeting.
Each year at its Annual Meeting the Council must elect a Mayor as first point of business; the Mayor then serves in office for the Municipal Year (May to May).
The Council is lucky to have had such a variety of Mayor’s since its formation in 1999, each with their own aspirations for their time in office and with unswerving dedication to their roles. Often, as the Mayor, they would receive an invite to an engagement on a weekly basis, some weeks as special occasions there may even be three or four engagements – this is on top of their duties and responsibilities as a Councillor, and all carried out voluntarily.
The Council offers its gratitude to those former Mayors of Seaford:
