The Worshipful the Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane
Every year a long serving councillor is appointed as the Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane. The Mayor's term of office is one year and the Mayor changes in May.
The Mayor is the first citizen of the borough. This means that only HM The Queen, members of the Royal Family and the Lord Lieutenant take precedence over the Mayor at events in the borough.
