Councillor Brenda Chivers has been confirmed as the new Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.
She took up the position, which she described as a ‘great honour’ at last night’s Annual Meeting.
Her selection means she is the 4th successive female Mayor since the Council’s inception.
In her address to the Chamber, Councillor Chivers said she intended to be a Mayor for all citizens, with a focus on economic development, tourism growth and ensuring all communities are valued by Council.
“We need to identify aspects over which we have control to help drive this Council forward economically. Promotion is key, good planning is crucial and the required infrastructure whether that means transport or technology is critical.
Councillor Chivers added that she is particularly looking forward to traveling right across the Council area to help highlight, promote, and celebrate the good work going on within communities.
The Deputy Mayor for the year ahead is Councillor Trevor Clarke.
