After being on Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea Town Council for just two years, Councillor Tony Mee will enter his third term as mayor of the town.

Mayor Mee was presented with the chains of office at the annual town meeting that was held on Monday evening (May 15).

Despite only becoming a town councillor two years ago, his fellow peers were full of praise for the way he’s thrust himself into representing the needs of the community and he was unanimously voted in as mayor for 2017/18.

Mr Mee said he was very excited about his forthcoming year in office.

“I’m really excited to have been chosen to be the mayor and it will be an honour to serve the community for the next year,” Coun Mee said.

He feels that this a great community to be around in and that both Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea had come a long way over the last few years.

Coun Mee added that he really enjoys being part of this council as politics are always left at the door and everyone really pitches in to put the needs of the community first.

“I am really looking forward to the year ahead as mayor for the first time,” Coun Mee said.

“I am able to take on the role thanks to all of the help and support I have received from fellow councillors and guidance from the town clerk.

“The advice they have all given me has been invaluable.”

Councillor Mee also said that he will be raising funds for two charities this year, but he is still deciding which two these will be.

The new deputy mayor was also elected on Monday, with the honour going to Councillor Stephen Palmer.

Coun Palmer said: “Thank you all very much for electing me as your deputy mayor.

“I will stand up for the communuity and do my very best to stand in for Tony on any engagements he is unable to attend.”
