New Lord Mayor welcomed by Manchester City Council

Manchester City Council have, today, announced that Councillor Donna Ludford has been elected as Lord Mayor of Manchester.

Cllr. Ludford was elected as councillor for Ancoats and Clayton, subsequently a councillor for Clayton and Openshaw, after the boundaries changed. She has been the Deputy Chair and the Chair of the Licensing Committee.

Speaking about her election, she said:

“Manchester has been my home for my whole life. It is where my children and grandchildren live, and I am passionate about making the city better for future generations.

 One of my key priorities is to focus on young people that are in the care system. As a care leaver myself I believe we can work with this sometimes-forgotten community and ensure that they receive support from Manchester City Council.

I have worked at Manchester City Council since the mid-1990s, where I started as a cleaner, I love the city and have been here for its key moments. I am excited to take my position as Lord Mayor and be involved at the heart of the Council.”

With a passion for working with children who are struggling with their education, Cllr Ludford is well suited to come into the role at a time when the UK Government are aiming to even out the regional inequalities and improve the opportunities for children from all backgrounds.
