The Town Mayor

 At the Annual Council meeting on the 20 May 2019 Councillor Malik Mohd Rofidi was appointed Mayor of Selby Town Council. 

 Malik was born in Lincolnshire and raised in the market town of Louth, a town very similar in size and character to Selby.

After studying at the University of York, Malik moved to the Selby area in 2013 and settled in quickly, working as a CAD technician near Castleford and campaigning on issues through various groups during his spare time.

 "I feel very privileged to be Mayor in a special year as our wonderful Abbey celebrates its 950th anniversary. There is so much happening and I am looking forward to attending as much as I can".

"As civic head I will be glad to meet workers and volunteers in the town and pass on the gratitude of the Town Council for their work. I am sure I will learn a lot from all the people I meet, which will help inform me in my role and beyond, and allowing me to share identified issues and acheivements with my fellow councillors. As chair, I aim to promote harmony and maintain the effectiveness of the Council".

"Selby is a wonderful town with fantastic people in it. It also is ever changing, and with an intake of some new blood in Town Council this year I think I reflect some of that. I hope I am able to facilitate as many Selebians feeling valued and interconnected with the Town Council and their activities as possible, whatever their age and circumstances".
