Porthleven Town Council has elected its Mayor and Deputy Mayor for the 2016/17 civic year. The new Mayor of Porthleven is Barbara Powell (who was deputy for the last two years, and yours truly has the honour to be the Deputy Mayor of Porthleven.
The new Mayor said on her election to office: I feel very privileged to have been elected mayor of Porthleven. It all seems rather unreal but I will work hard for our little town. I want to include everyone in caring and improving where we live making it the thriving community that it is, a wonderful place to live.
Furthermore, Barbara said she will rely on Daniel William’s good sense and support and experience of being mayor. Having Andrew Wallis as my deputy will be a great asset as he also brings being a County Councillor to the job. Thank you to the town Councillors who elected me, for their wide range of skills and good humour they bring to the monthly council meetings.
I am very grateful to Members of Porthleven Town Council for having faith in me and electing me to the office of Deputy Mayor of Porthleven. I very much look forward to supporting Barbara Powell, as Mayor of Porthleven in the coming year. I must pay tribute to Daniel Williams who has led Porthleven Town Council for the last two years. He has carried out this role brilliantly, and has raised the profile of Porthleven both near and far during his term of office.
