On Monday, 14 May, Fazeley Town Council voted 21-year-old Cllr Rebecca James in as Mayor for the coming year.
Rebecca is the youngest person to be the First Citizen of Fazeley and, at 21, it is believed that she is the youngest ever Mayor in the UK.
Rebecca has been an active member of the Conservative controlled Town Council since January 2009 when she was co-opted on just 3 months after her 18th birthday.
Rebecca became Deputy Mayor of Fazeley last year and she now joins her father Cllr Andrew James (2009-2011) in the list of Fazeley Mayors.
At Monday’s meeting Rebecca paid tribute to the Town’s outgoing Mayor and she thanked all councillors for their support in voting for her.
She said, “I would like to thank everyone for their support and also to thank the outgoing Mayor for his excellent term in office and I hope I can do Fazeley proud in my term of office.”
Also at the meeting, Cllr Simon Clements was voted as the Deputy Mayor for the coming year and Cllr Andrew James was re-elected as Leader of the Town Council.
