Elected Mayor

Mayor Dave Hodgson was first elected Mayor in October 2009. He is a Liberal Democrat, and prior to becoming Mayor he was a Councillor for the Kingsbrook Ward from 2002. He was re-elected in May 2011, and his current term of office as Mayor is until May 2015.

Bedford Borough Council is one of only 14 Councils in the country to have a Directly  Elected Mayor. Unlike the more traditional ceremonial Mayors, Directly Elected Mayors have wide decision making powers and Mayor Hodgson provides the political leadership of the Council as well as being the Borough’s First Citizen. Together with the Councillors he has appointed to his Executive, Mayor Hodgson is responsible for the majority of Council Services.
