New Young Mayor of Lewisham elected

The Lewisham Young Mayor for 2014–15 is Liam Islam and the Deputy Young Mayor is Oneisha Palmer.

Posted: 11/06/2014

Liam Islam,14, attends Deptford Green School and won with 1,210 votes. 28 candidates campaigned to become the voice of the
borough’s youth. 49% of young people eligible to vote turned out, something we should be very proud of, especially as the turn out for the council elections in May was only 37%.

He will be responsible for a budget of £30,000
to spend on priorities identified by local young people.
