Mapesbury councillor elected new mayor of Brent

Mapesbury councillor Lia Colacicco will succeed Cllr Ernest Ezeajughi for the 2021/22 municipal year having served as deputy mayor for the previous term.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the ceremony took place online on Thursday (April 29), though the new mayor vowed to hold a physical celebration once it is safe to do so.

The borough’s first Anglo-Italian mayor, Cllr Colacicco said she will “shamelessly promote” Brent, noting its recent position as London Borough of Culture and recognition as ‘council of the year’ in 2020.
