Former Lord Mayor's Link to this post

Hello all,

I wondered if any of you can help. We have elections coming up in May and have a system here where if the Lord Mayor or Sheriff cannot attend an event we invite a Former Lord Mayor.

Hypothetically we could be in a situation where due to FLM not standing or potentially not being elected can we use a non-councillor to represent the Civic Office. In Canterbury any Former Lord Mayor automatically becomes an alderman so could they represent?

Any thoughts or advice on what you currently do would be appreciated.

Thanks
Darren

Where I worked on the rare occasions neither the Mayor nor Deputy was available we asked pan Honorary Alderman to represent them if the engagement was important. We usually tried to choose an Aldermen whose interests were best suited to the engagement.
