Double mayoral rein for Cheadle Councillor

HISTORY was made at the annual general meeting of Cheadle Town Council which took place at the Standard Centre in Station Road on Monday evening.
One of the highlights of the annual meeting is the appointment of the new Town Mayor and Deputy Mayor for the ensuing municipal year.
On settling down for the meeting councillors and members of the public were expecting to see outgoing Mayor Councillor Philip Routledge and Deputy Mayor Councillor Julie Bull hand over their respective chains of office to newly appointed successors.
Prior to nominations Councillor Bull thanked the outgoing Mayor for his dedication to the role over the past twelve months: “Can I just say thank you to Councillor Routledge for his year as Mayor.  He has been to just about every function there has been and supported the town well and for that I thank you very much.”
Councillor Bull went on to nominate Councillor Routledge to serve again as Mayor.  A further nomination for Councillor Ian Plant was put forward by Councillor Gary Bentley.
In a show of hands the council vote was won by ten votes to eight in favour of Councillor Routledge being re-elected to serve as Mayor for a second consecutive year – a first for Cheadle Town Council.
A further nomination from Councillor Bull that Councillor Stephen Ellis be elected to support Councillor Routledge as Deputy Mayor gained the support of the council.
Speaking on his re-appointment Councillor Routledge commented: “It is a great honour to have been re-elected to serve as Cheadle’s Town Mayor for a second term.  I’m so proud to be Mayor again so quickly.”
