Junior Mayor

Each year a Junior Mayor is elected in the City of Kingston. The election process involves local primary schools each nominating one pupil who makes a two minute speech and the remaining students vote for the best presentation. The Junior Mayor, who receives junior mayoral robes, chains and $200 from the Chelsea Rotary Club, is called on to assist the Mayor at a range of official Council events.

The Junior Mayor program has been running for over 50 years and is sponsored by the Chelsea Rotary Club. It aims to help educate and engage young people about how Government works and how they can get involved, while also providing support and experience to our budding future leaders.

Junior Mayor elections are held each April as part of National Youth Week.

This year the successful candidate was Jack O'Connor, a grade six school student from Patterson Lakes Primary School.
