Town Mayor 2022/23

We are delighted to announce that, at the Annual Council meeting held on 24 May 2023,
Cllr Mick Stubbings was elected as the Loughton Town Mayor for 2023/24.

Cllr Chris Pond, in his nomination of Cllr Stubbings said that he had made a very good Deputy Mayor, and is an authentic Loughton fellow, having been born and bred in Loughton, he has lived his whole life as a Loughton resident and is often seen and known by his fellow councillors walking his dog. Mick is a valuable Councillor for Alderton Ward, and a member of the Loughton Historical Society.

After his election, Cllr Stubbings thanked members for the honour of becoming Loughton Town Mayor. He said that he was very proud and happy to be following Cllr Cohen and can only hope that he achieves as much as she has done in her year.

Members also paid tribute to the work of outgoing mayor, Cllr Barbara Cohen, commenting on how well she had fulfilled her role in a proficient and exemplary way. Barbara did a really good job at bringing extra focus and publicity to her role.

The new Town Mayor congratulated Councillor Katie Valentine on her appointment as Deputy Town Mayor. Katie first joined the Council in 2021 to represent Alderton Ward. In nominating her, Cllr Chris Pond described Katie as a worthy Deputy, as she too was born, went to school and has lived her whole life in Loughton. Katie said that she was really looking forward to supporting Mick.

Note to Editor:

Loughton’s Town Mayor is elected annually in May by the Town Council. The mayor’s role is to preside over meetings of the council, as well as representing the council at civic and ceremonial functions, such as the Remembrance Sunday parade and the annual Civic Service.

For immediate release.
