St IvesTown Council has unanimously agreed that Councillor Dan Rowe will become Mayor and that Councillor Jonathan Pallant will be Deputy Mayor in May.
Working to the normal civic calendar the Town Council, at last Wednesday’s Council meeting, selected the Councillors who it is
proposed will become the Mayor and Deputy Mayor during the 2019/2020 civic year, which will start after Mayor making on 8th May.
Of course their positions will not be confirmed until the May ceremony, however it would be unusual for a Mayor elect not to take up the post.
Dan, (pictured right) is a graduate engineer working in Huntingdon, still in his twenties and will be one of the youngest Mayors in the country. He continues the trend for young St Ives Mayors, being a similar age to Councillor Phil Pope when he became Mayor in 2017.
Deputy Mayor Jonathan Pallant is a software engineer, father and inveterate tinkerer and according to his profile is a keen cyclist who has worked to help bring community groups together, with events like the Community Fair.
