The Mayor

The Role of the Mayor

Each year Town Councillors elect one Councillor to become the Mayor of Hatfield. The role has both symbolic and practical importance; the Mayor is the Town’s first citizen, represents Hatfield at various engagements during the year, and chairs full council meetings. The Mayor is the recognised representative of the Council on all civic and ceremonial occasions.

The Mayor is non-political and represents every section of the community regardless of political persuasion. The role of the Mayor is to reflect the aims and strategies of the Council. During most engagements, the Mayor will wear the Chain and Badge of Office.
