Wed, 10 May 2023

Mrs Natalie Byron-Teare has been elected to serve as the Mayor of Douglas for the 2023-24 municipal year.

Members of the Council voted unanimously to elect Mrs Byron-Teare at the annual Council meeting this afternoon (Wednesday).

Described as a ‘dedicated councillor’ for Douglas Central, she was first elected to the local authority at a by-election in 2016 before being re-elected in 2021.

Proposing the nomination, Councillor Steven Crellin described his Council colleague as someone who listens to her constituents, a charitable individual whose tireless efforts and unwavering dedication to the community would be an asset to Douglas.

Announcing her theme for her year in office as ‘Community & Charity’ – two aspects of life the new Mayor believes rely heavily on each other to survive – Mrs Byron-Teare announced the three charities she had selected for her Mayoral term: The RNLI, Live at Home scheme and the IoM Parrot Sanctuary.
