The Mayor for 2024-25 is Councillor Marie Bradburn

Mayor Marie Bradburn


The Mayor of Milton Keynes is chosen each year at the Annual Council Meeting (usually in May). 

Marie has represented the Bradwell ward since 2016 and has served on a number of committees, including Children and Young People and Health and Adult Social Care – all being issues she is very passionate about. Mayor Bradburn has also chaired the Corporate Parenting Panel since 2020 and has always been an advocate for children in care. Marie has also been a member of Bradwell Parish Council since 2012. 

Having lived in Milton Keynes for almost 30 years, Mayor Bradburn has seen the city grow and flourish. She is a strong advocate of community involvement and wants to further encourage people from diverse backgrounds to come together. 

The themes of Marie’s Mayoral Year will be education, young people, and active transport. As a keen cyclist herself, Mayor Bradburn would like to encourage more children and young people to travel sustainably across the city to reduce the impact of climate change. 

Over the course of the year Mayor Bradburn will be attending as many events as possible by cycling and walking to promote sustainable travel and to ensure Milton Keynes is well on its way to becoming a cleaner, greener, and healthier city. 

Traditionally the Mayor’s Consort is a family member, but on this occasion, Cllr Bradburn has invited two young people in care to accompany her on official visits.

The Mayor will be showcasing the fantastic work of the city’s voluntary charitable sector.
