Nick Webb elected as new mayor of Lowestoft
A NEW mayor of Lowestoft was announced last night (Monday).
The election of the new mayor and deputy mayor for 2012 to 2013 took place on Monday evening at the annual meeting of the Lowestoft Charter Trustees.
A Waveney District Council spokesman said: 'Councillor Nick Webb and councillor June Ford were duly elected as new town mayor and the deputy mayor of Lowestoft respectively for the municipal year 2012/13.'
In the absence of a town council in Lowestoft, the Charter Trustees - a body made up of the Waveney district councillors who represent the Lowestoft wards - AGM was held at the Town Hall in Lowestoft.
Mr Webb, who was first elected to Waveney in 2007, is one of three Labour councillors representing the Whitton ward. He lives in Whitton with his wife Sarah - who is also a councillor for Whitton, and was deputy mayor for 2011-12.
