Saltash Town Council
The current Mayor is Councillor Gloria Challen. The Mayor serves for a year and each year in Spring the Council votes for a new Mayor-elect who is then officially confirmed at ‘Mayor Choosing’.
There are 16 Saltash Town Councillors: 4 for each ward. Saltash North Ward, Saltash South Ward, Saltash East Ward, Saltash West Ward. The councillors are elected every 4 years: spaces are filled either by by-elections, or by the Town Council choosing new councillors (‘co-option’). To stand as a Town Councillor you have to be over 18 and usually have to work or live in Saltash. Councillors are not paid, although they can claim a small allowance for phone calls and stationery.
