Havering has a new Mayor.

Councillor John Mylod, who represents St Andrews ward, was elected to be Mayor of Havering for 2020/21 having served the last year as Deputy Mayor. He was first elected to Havering Council in 1994 and previously served as Mayor of Havering in 2005/06.Download

The Mayor’s wife, Patricia, will serve as Mayoress for the year. Patricia was previously a councillor in Upminster for 20 years.

He becomes the first Mayor of Havering to be elected through a virtual vote due to the restrictions put in place by the Coronavirus crisis.

Councillor John Mylod said:

It’s a great honour and an absolute privilege to have been elected Mayor of Havering. I look forward to being able to support and champion the wonderful residents, businesses, and local community during these difficult times.

My chosen charities to support will be announced in due course.

I look forward to working with the new Deputy Mayor, Councillor Christine Vickery.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but wasn’t Councillor John Mylod elected as a Councillor for the Hornchurch Residents Association? Quite a reward for a defector I must say. So what’s in store for the other Hornchurch Residents Association defector, Sally Miller? Great shame neither had the guts to stand as Conservative Councillors in the first instance, but had no hesitation in taking the ‘Queens shilling’ when offered, and decided to switch sides. Will they have the ‘courage’ to stand again in the next elections? Voters have long memories!
