Councillor Nick Fogg was last night (Monday 06 February) confirmed as Mayor-to-be for the next year by fellow Councillors at an extra-ordinary meeting of the Town Council last night.
The vote was unanimous. Eleven of the twelve all raised their hands in support, only one didn’t – Councillor Fogg himself and with that level of support he was hardly likely to vote for himself.
Councillor Fogg will be Mayor for a third time next year. Elected first for 1985, then again twenty four years later for 2009, and now, after a somewhat shorter gap (fourteen years) for 2023.
“I’m honoured to have been asked to serve for the third time. In these somewhat depressed times, let’s hope we can show that a sense of fun is never far away.” Councillor Fogg told Marlborough.news when the announcement of his nomination was made public last week.
Councillor Kymee Cleasby was elected to serve as Deputy Mayor alongside Cllr Fogg for the next year. An active Councillor, Kymee runs Sue Brady catering, whilst having been instrumental in the creation of Marlborough’s important and very necessary charity – love marlborough kids meals – which provides hot family meals to those in the Marlborough community who otherwise, in this time of financial hardship might never enjoy a hot meal.
Mayor-making is scheduled for Monday 02 May
