2016/17 Municipal Year Mayor of Seaford: Councillor Lindsay Freeman
The Council is pleased to announce that Councillor Lindsay Freeman was appointed as Mayor of Seaford for this coming Municipal Year. Councillor Freeman is now in her second year of office as a Town Councillor but did also serve a four year term back in 2003-2007, so has a good sound knowledge of Seaford and how the Council operates.
Councillor Dave Argent who has carried out the role of Mayor of Seaford for the past year handed over the Mayoral Chain and was thanked for all his hard work, dedication and achievements during his time in the Mayoral office. The Council also extended its thanks and recognition to the former Mayoress, Mrs Marian Argent, for all the support she gave the Mayor during his service.
In reaction to her election, Councillor Freeman said “When I first came to Seaford to study to become a Home Economics teacher, little did I think that years later I would become Mayor. Seaford became my home and although I moved away, I kept returning and have lived here since 1982. It's an honour to be elected as Mayor and I will do the best I can for the whole Town."
Mayor Freeman has announced her chosen charities for the coming year as Waifs & Strays Dog Rescue, who take in and rehome unwanted dogs, and the RNLI, a national charity with a lifeboat stationed in Newhaven, they not only save and rescue lives at sea but also provide vital education and safety awareness lessons. The Mayor will be fundraising for these two life-changing charities over the coming year and helping raise awareness of the work both charities do.
