I have been nominated to be this years Deputy Mayor. This will be confirmed at the annual meeting of the Council on Thursday 16th May. I am the only candidate being put forward for the position. After serving for this year as Deputy Mayor I will automatically be the Mayor next year. unless I resign again.

I already have watch what I say and do.
Recently I was reported for a breach of the Councillor code of conduct by a taxi driver. All I did was offer him some advice on how to hold on to his badge. He was plying for hire on a rank but facing the wrong way because he didn't want to go further up the road and face the correct way because someone else may have got the space first. When he was challenged about it by another driver he got very abusive in front of various witnesses and the final straw was that he didn't have his drivers badge with him, it was at home 15 miles away. I simply advised him that he should be wearing his badge and he should go home and get it and suggested that he should obey rank discipline as per our policy and not get abusive to other drivers. He reported me saying that I told him I was an enforcement officer and I was going to have his badge. Still he came unstuck because after an investigation I was cleared of any wrongdoing and he could now be facing a hearing because in his complaint he admitted all the things that he was doing wrong.

The mayor for 2017/18 was deputy Mayor after serving just 1 year. Most of the longer serving Councillors have already been Mayor. The current Mayor has been a Councillor for many years and this years mayor was also Mayor 25 years ago. There a 3 reasons that I have the job of deputy this year and Mayor next year. 1, i have taken what was a safe Labour seat 3 times in 4 years. 2, I have the time available to actually do the job. and 3, no one else put their name forward.

Is the correct answer.

That's why I will be the Chairman of a rather important group of people from October. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Mayors are a total waste of money and time.
