Re-installed First Citizen is praised for her many 'personal attributes'
Michaela Ellis spoke of the ‘honour and privilege’ she felt after being installed for a second year as Lyme Regis Town Mayor.
She will continue to be supported by husband Alan as mayor’s consort, and Cllr Steve Miller and wife Heather as deputy mayor and mayoress.
Cllr Ellis said: “The council will try to achieve the best for our town, for the residents and our visitors. We may not get it right all the time, but we do try.”
Cllr Cheryl Reynolds, who nominated Cllr Ellis for the role, spoke of her many ‘personal attributes’ and how the job of chairing the council and championing the council was ‘not an easy one’.
She said it was important to have someone at the helm who was ‘strong, powerful and extremely effective, working ‘for the people, not the politics’.
She added: “Michaela is a unifying force for this council and it’s so important we have a mayor who helps us work together to achieve unity for this town.”
