Stockport councillors welcomed our new mayor for 2016/17. Stockport’s First Citizen for the coming year is Chris Gordon. We also said farewell to Andy Verdeille, the outgoing mayor who has also stepped down as a councillor.
As well as a long career as a health researcher in Manchester, Chris Gordon is a huge roller coaster fan (he’s ridden the Big One at Blackpool more than a thousand times). He enjoys goth metal as well.
Chris and his wife, Dr Margaret Gordon, will be the Mayor and Mayoress for the coming year .
June Somekh ended a busy year as Deputy Mayor and handed over to the new Deputy Mayor, Lisa Walker.2 Comments
