The Mayor of Milton Keynes
Cllr Mohammed Khan, 50, is Milton Keynes’ first Bangladeshi Mayor.
First elected to Milton Keynes Council in 2013, Mayor Khan succeeds outgoing Mayor Andrew Geary and took office on 17 May 2021.
He says: “I grew up in Bletchley with my family and I am exceptionally proud to be one of the first Bangladeshi Councillors at Milton Keynes Council. It is a privilege to be Mayor of MK, and I couldn’t be prouder of what our borough and communities have managed to achieve in just over 50 years.”
Mayor Khan was born and raised in the country of Bangladesh in a city called Sylhet, moving to Bletchley with his parents in 1982 and attending Water Hall Primary School, then Leon School where he took his GCSEs. He studied IT at MK College in Bletchley.
Mayor Khan married Mrs Lilipa Aktar in 2001. He has raised five children (including twins). His eldest daughter works in adult social care, and he also has an older son in full time education studying business, a daughter in primary school and twins aged three.
A vice chairman in the Milton Keynes Labour group for three years, Mayor Khan was also a committee member for the housing, budget, finance and standards committees. He has been campaigning for regeneration and is thrilled for the regeneration of Serpentine Court in The Lakes Estate, Bletchley where he was raised.
The Mayor’s hobbies include playing football and cricket. He is a huge fan of Manchester United FC and MK Dons.
Cllr Khan’s chosen charities are Islamic Arts, Heritage and Culture, and British Heart Foundation.
