Church Langley councillor Andrew Johnson has been elected Chair of Harlow Council for a second consecutive term at last night’s (Thursday 25 May) Annual Council meeting.
It is the first time in Harlow that a Chair has secured consecutive terms.
During his first term in office, he raised a record £14,500 for his chosen charities, Streets2Homes and Harlow Rock School, which they will share equally. Councillor Johnson will be announcing his charities for the coming year at the next Council meeting.
Also elected as Vice-Chair last night was Old Harlow councillor Sue Livings, who is also embarking on a second consecutive term.
The Chair’s theme for this year will be ‘the gems of Harlow’ – whether they are people, organisations or places, he will be looking to promote them all in the coming year.
If you are planning an event over the course of the next year that you would like the Chair of the Council to attend, you can find details on how to invite them on the Council Chair page.
