Councillor Alex Phillips has become the youngest-ever Mayor of Brighton and Hove. Alex was first elected in a by-election in July 2009 and then re-elected at the following three local elections.
The Mayoralty in Brighton and Hove is ceremonial and politically neutral unlike, for example, the Mayor of London which is an executive position with financial, operational and policy responsibilities.
Alex is familiar with the work of BHT as a former member of the BHT Board, and we are delighted that she has chosen our women’s counselling service, Threshold, as one of the charities she will be supporting during her year as Mayor.
