The Mayor of Brighton & Hove

T​he Mayor

Mayor of Brighton & Hove, Councillor Mo Marsh

Councillor Mo Marsh is the current Mayor of Brighton & Hove. She was elected by her fellow councillors at the Annual Council meeting on 18 May 2017. She serves as mayor for one year until the next Annual Council Meeting in May 2018. The mayor will be supported during her mayoral year by Robert Brown MBE.

The mayor is the first citizen of Brighton & Hove and undertakes an important ceremonial role in and outside the city. However, this role is different from some mayors and lord mayors such as the elected Mayor of London. The mayor of Brighton & Hove is not directly elected by the people and therefore holds no direct power.

The mayor is politically neutral in carrying out all of their mayoral duties.
