On Tuesday 10th May 2016, following the successful Mayoralty of Cllr Denise Michell, Cllr Jon Cousins became the second Glastonbury Green Councillor to be elected as Mayor of Glastonbury!
Cllr Cousins was unanimously voted into office by the full Town Council, and said afterwards: “Being elected the 317th Mayor of Glastonbury is something I truly never expected to happen... It is a huge honour to have this opportunity to serve Glastonbury, and – therefore – it seemed appropriate to have three words added to the ‘Declaration of Acceptance of Office’ before I would agree to say/sign it... They are: ‘and serve Glastonbury’ – I don’t expect any future Mayors will remove them! ”
The new Green Mayor was inaugurated on Sunday 22nd May during the Mayor’s Sunday Civic Service at Glastonbury’s St. John the Baptist Church.
