Neath Port Talbot Council elects a new mayor for each civic year.
The Mayor’s role is to be an ambassador for the area, supporting local community, voluntary and charity groups throughout the year.
The Mayor for 2019/20 is Councillor Scott Jones and the Mayoress is Mrs. Jemma Jones.
The Deputy Mayor of Neath Port Talbot is Councillor John Warman
The Mayor’s theme for his time in office is 'community'.
The Mayor’s Charities
Councillor Jones has chosen to support two charities in his civic year, one of them being the Multiple Sclerosis Society which provides invaluable support to people with the condition.
The other will take the form of a fund which will be set up to help third sector community organisations. They will be able to apply to the fund for help with their community projects.
As well as carrying out hundreds of civic duties during the year, chairing meetings of the full Council and attending annual events, the Mayor is involved with a programme of events designed to raise awareness of all the good work being carried out across the county borough and/or raise funds for the Mayor’s Charities.
