The new Deputy Young Mayor was welcomed by Seaford Town Council this week.
Gabrielle Edwards was selected as the winner in the council chamber on July 25 after a ballot.
It was a very close result with a difference of less than 50 votes between the two candidates out of 300 votes in total. Gabrielle was then presented with her chain of office by Seaford Mayor Mark Brown.
She said: “I feel very proud to be chosen for Deputy Young Mayor and I look forward to representing the youth of
Seaford over the coming two years.”
As Deputy Young Mayor her duties will include attending public events and supporting the Young Mayor.
