Mayor of Redbridge
Cllr Debbie Kaur-Thiara (2018-2019 Municipal Year)
The Mayor for the municipal year 2018 to 2019 is Councillor Debbie Kaur-Thiara who was selected at the Annual Council meeting on Thursday 24 May 2018.
Cllr Kaur-Thiara has lived in the London Borough of Redbridge her entire life here, attending school and later raising her family in the borough.
She enjoyed a career in the civil service for over 30 years as a Senior Policy Adviser, but has always been passionate about giving children a great start in life and so decided to set up her own children’s nursery.
A Ward Councillor for Aldborough since 2011, she has campaigned with residents for step free access at Newbury Park Station for the disabled and vulnerable and to save King George Hospital A&E.
The Mayor has also helped the community by volunteering for a drugs line charity and a door-to-door library service.
Cllr Kaur-Thiara’s focus during the year will be to promote children’s services available in the Borough.
Councillor Kaur-Thiara will be supported in her Mayoral Year by Mayoress/Consort Sabrina Lakham.
Her Deputy will be Councillor Taifur Rashid, Member for Loxford Ward and her consort will be Harunur Rashid.
