Councillor Liam Dealtry has been re-elected Mayor of Bridlington for the third time in succession. This will be the fifth time overall that he has held the office, making him the second longest serving Mayor of the town. Speaking on Bridlington Gold, Councillor Dealtry said “I am overwhelmed by the support, shown by my fellow councillors, in re-electing me.” He went on to say “being elected to serve as the Mayor of my home town was one of the proudest moments of my life, to actually hold the office, for a fifth time, is a tremendous honour.” Liam also said “It’s a privilege to be able to serve, both the residents and the town that I grew up in, and it is my intention to be as accessible as possible to the people of the town and to help in any way I can.”
The Mayor’s chosen charities for this year are: The Bridlington Royal Navy Association, Bridlington Submariners Association, the Bridlington Fisherman’s Mission, Bridlington Lifeboat and the Bridlington Sea Cadets. He has set a target to raise a minimum of £300 per charity and all donations to the Mayor’s charity fund would be gratefully received.
