Cllr Mike Cuddy (Labour St Augustines) who is currently the Deputy Mayor of Penarth and also Leader of the Town Council has been nominated to be the next Mayor of Penarth for the Mayoral year 2016/17.

The nomination was made by Cllr Mark Wilson (Labour Stanwell) and seconded by the current Mayor Cllr Rosemary Cook (Labour St Augustines) . For the Conservative members, Cllr Clive Williams (Conservative Plymouth Ward) asked he if could “jointly third that from our side”.

In response Cllr Cuddy said “Thank you very much for the confidence you have shown in me” . Cllr Cuddy is a retired former Welsh Government civil servant and professional planner who has  also worked for the Welsh Development Agency .

When nominations were invited for the post of Deputy Town Mayor, Cllr Cuddy nominated Cllr Tracey Alexander (Labour Cornerswell) . Her nomination was seconded by Cllr Neil Thomas (Labour Cornerswell) .

Cllr Alexander is a married mother of five who is deputy chairman of Penarth Civic Society. She has been involved in the development  of the Flatholm Project and Cosmeston Mediaeval Village,  the Windsor Road Allotment Group and is a governor of two local schools.

There were no other nominations for either role. Both Cllr Cuddy and Cllr Alexander will be formally elected and officially begin their year of office in a special meeting of Penarth Town Council next month.

When Penarth Town Council reconvenes in May it will be entering an unprecedented fifth term of office – going beyond the four-year public mandate it was given when elected in May 2012. This is because the period of office for it – and for the Vale of Glamorgan Council –  was extended by the Welsh Government until 2017 because of complications arising from local government re-organisation.

A new Penarth Town Council is to be elected in May 2017.
