John Rumsey Mayor

Mayor of Leominster - Cllr John Rumsey

The Mayor is elected by the Full Council at the Annual Town Council meeting each May.  A Deputy Town Mayor is also elected.

Being the Mayor is different to being a Councillor.  A Mayor, by virtue of the Office, can stimulate community pride, encourage business, promote the voluntary sector etc and represent the Council at civic events.

The Mayor is the public face of the Council and with this in mind the Mayor needs to portray a genuine interest in those they meets, show enthusiasm and commitment to the role and always be mindful of the dignity of the office.

Councillor John Rumsey was elected as the 466th Mayor of Leominster in May 2020, with Councillor Trish Marsh elected as Deputy Mayor.

Councillor Rumsey has selected Marches Family Network and Services for Independent Living as his Mayoral Charities.
