Ipswich Borough Councillor Bill Quinton has been selected by the administration as its choice to be the next Mayor of the town.
Councillor Quinton served as Mayor in 1988-1989 and was the unanimous choice, said Council colleague Bill Knowles: “He has great experience of Council work and was an effective Mayor when he served the town before.”
The Mayor is chosen by all 48 Councillors at a full Council meeting and Mayor-making ceremony. This year that meeting will be held on 4th June.
The current Mayor, Councillor Hamil Clarke, will continue in his role until the meeting on 4th June.
