Mayor of Brighton

Councillor Pete West is the current Mayor of Brighton & Hove. He was elected
by his fellow councillors at the Annual Council meeting on 12 May 2016. He serves as mayor for one year until the next Annual Council Meeting in May 2017. The mayor will be supported during his mayoral year by his partner, Geraldine.

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.
