We understand that Cllr Jacqui Meade (Lab) – pictured – has been put forward to become the first Labour Mayor of Folkestone in eighteen years. This will take place at the Folkestone Town Council meeting for Mayor making on the 14th May at the Town Hall, Folkestone. If Ms Meade becomes Mayor, she will be the first Labour Mayor since John Stockham, who was Mayor between 1999 – 2001.
We understand Cllr Ray Field (Lab) (pictured) will be her deputy, but of course nothing can be absolutely confirmed until it happens. The Folkestone & Hythe Labour Party met earlier today to put forward the motion, discuss it and then vote on it as you can see below.
