Louth Town Council - Working with the community to make Louth a better place to live and work

Louth Mayor Elected for a Second Consecutive Year – First time in 65 years!

17th May 2021

On May 6th 2021 Councillor Darren Hobson was delighted to be endorsed by his fellow Councillors at Louth Town Council to be elected as Mayor of Louth and Chairman of the Council for the next year.

Following a year in which he served the community as one of the youngest Mayors in the town’s history, his re-election marks the first occasion in 65 years that the same person has been elected as Mayor of Louth for two consecutive years, the last being Councillor Maxey way back in 1956.

Councillor Hobson explained “It is an enormous honour and a privilege to serve my colleagues as the Chairman of Louth Town Council and the town as Mayor.

“This last year, as it has been said many times previously, has been a most unusual year and due to the pandemic crisis, I was not able to represent the Council in a ‘normal’ manner out and about in the community. Hopefully, as the situation continues to improve over the coming months, both the Mayoress, Sarah-Jayne, and I will be able to make face-to-face contact with many more Louth residents, local groups and businesses.”
