The Mayor - Councillor Andrew Jenner
The Mayoress - Mrs Julia Jenner

Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead - Councillor Andrew JennerThe Mayor is the first citizen of the Borough and is elected to the post by fellow Councillors at the Borough Council's annual meeting in May each year. The role of Mayor is a non political position and during the mayoral year, a Mayor puts aside council duties to concentrate on the role as the town's first citizen.

In addition to chairing the Council meeting, the Mayor attends many different types of functions throughout the Borough. These include representing the Council at civic functions, receiving dignitaries, attending Dinners, opening events, talking to clubs and societies and visiting schools. The Mayor also hosts visits to the Mayor's Parlour from various groups/organisations. The Mayor also asks the Deputy Mayor to stand in if the Mayor is not available.

The Mayor's correct title is The Worshipful the Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. After formal introductions, speakers should refer to the Mayor as Mr (Madam) Mayor.
