The Handover of the Chains
The AGM of Porthleven Town Council took place last night. As with all annual meetings there are elections to positions of Mayor, Deputy Mayor and memberships to the various committees.
Firstly, I would like to congratulate and give my sincere thanks to Cllr Harry Pugh for his work and dedication as Mayor of Porthleven. During his term in office Harry has raised the profile of Porthleven throughout Cornwall.
For the position of Mayor two Councillors stood; Mark Berryman and Dick Powell. A vote was taken and Mark Berryman was declared winner. For the position of Deputy there was only one candidate. Therefore I am delighted to announce that the Porthleven Mayor and Deputy Mayor for 2011-12 is now Mark Berryman and Sue Johns. I would like to offer my congratulations and support to them both in their roles.
