RIPON has a new Mayor after Coun Mick Stanley – pictured on the town hall steps with his wife, Gillian – was elected to the post by members of Ripon City Council at its annual general meeting yesterday (Thursday, May 12).

The meeting followed last week’s local elections in which independent candidates won ten of the seats on the council, with Conservative Party candidates taking the other five.
