About the Mayor of Haringey
The Mayor is the elected Chair of the Council and is the Civic and Ceremonial figurehead for the Council.
The chain, badge and robes of office are an outward sign of this high office.
The Mayor is elected at the Annual Meeting of the Council.
The Mayor is by statute the first Citizen. This is an honorary title and means that the Mayor takes precedence over everyone apart from a member of the Royal Family and the Lord Lieutenant of London. The Mayor must be non-political and represent every section of the community.
Apart from the Civic and Ceremonial duties and functions that the Mayor performs for the council, they also represent the borough at all major events and historical ceremonies in Haringey.
The Mayor has an important role to play in promoting the work of the council and supporting local community, voluntary and charitable organisations and in celebrating and recognising achievements and milestones.
About Councillor Gina Adamou
"I am looking forward to my 4th time of being Mayor, I feel honoured.
I am the first woman councillor of Cypriot origin to hold the mayoralty.
I came to the UK from Cyprus in 1960 and have lived in Haringey for over 40 years and in Harringay ward since 1972. I have represented Harringay ward at the council since 1990.
I have previously served as Social Services Committee Chair, and chaired Scrutiny panels on Recycling and Waste Minimisation and Social Services.
I have 3 grown-up children and 4 grandchildren, all at local schools.
I am always working on behalf of all people of Haringey. Wherever people live, and whatever their background, they are citizens of Haringey, and my role is to build on our fantastic history of diverse communities working together for a better borough."
