Marlow’s Mayor

Marlow’s Mayor for 2023/24 is Councillor David Brown

Role of Mayor

The Mayor is the First Citizen of Marlow, giving precedence only to Royalty and the Queen’s representative (Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire or his Deputy Lieutenant). As First Citizen, the Mayor acts as a focal point, particularly in times of crisis, celebration or tragedy.

Being Mayor of Marlow is a demanding role with upwards of over 100 engagements per year on average. Engagements are principally undertaken by the Mayor, but the Deputy Mayor and Past town Mayors attend a number of events on behalf of the Mayor, particularly at busy times.

The Mayor can use his/her position to stimulate community pride and promote the voluntary sector. The Mayor is also the symbol of an open society as historically the position of Mayor was once only open to the privileged few but the Mayor now reflects the diversity of the more open and democratic society and can come from any class, gender or ethnic background.

The Mayor is in the public spotlight more than any other person in the Council. As the role is non-political, the Mayor can often reach places and people that other politicians may not be able to and therefore has an important role in representing the Council and the residents of Marlow

Each year the Mayor selects a charity to support , as highlighted below,
