The Mayor of Milton Keynes
Amanda Marlow is a Conservative councillor for Loughton and Shenley Ward. She was elected in 2019, and has always worked hard for her residents. In that time she has been vice chair of the Licensing & Regulatory Committee, as well as vice chair of Community and Housing Scrutiny Committee. She has always been interested in education, special educational needs and disabilities, and children social care. Amanda has been a long standing member of Children & Young People Scrutiny Committee for many years, through her role as a Parent Governor. She is married to Richard and they have four children. She has chosen her eldest son James to be her Mayor’s Consort, as she feels that the experience will be something that can never be replicated and he will learn and appreciate so much more about the city of his birth.
If you were to ask Amanda what does she love most about Milton Keynes, she’d struggle to give you a single answer. The truth is that what she loves most about MK is everything. She loves that MK is a network of historic villages mixed in with new and modern development which capture the diverse communities that gives MK it’s generous nature. She loves that there are open green spaces right on her doorstep, to walk her dogs by the lakes, through woodlands and along the meandering paths by the river and canal that flow through MK. Above all else, she loves the fact that even though she moved here 35 years ago as a teenager, she chose to get married here, to raise a family and to make MK her home.
This year promises to be a busy one, with the start of the year long celebrations to mark HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, with Stadium:mk hosting four matches for the Women’s Euros including a semi final, plus an exciting football season at MK Dons as they strive to achieve promotion. As Mayor of Milton Keynes, Amanda will be carrying out many engagements right across the borough and beyond by championing MK, through supporting local businesses, attending places of worship, visiting schools, community projects and charities, but also by helping to raise awareness about something very close to her heart; learning disabilities and physical disabilities, by promoting her two Mayor’s charities MK SNAP and Medical Detection Dogs.
