Nonetheless, in his acceptance speech, Councillor Wright said "it is a great privilege and honour to serve the Town and the Town Council as first citizen.  And it is not a role that I will take for granted or take likely".

Councillor Wright will be supported through the year by his partner and follow Town Councillor, Sharon Betts.
