She was proposed by the opposition Conservative leader Councillor Geoffrey Theobald who said: “Dee has been a councillor since 1999. She has been a real community champion in Woodingdean and across the city and a champion of the voluntary sector.

“She runs the community centre, the youth centre and the community café in Woodingdean.

“I’m sure that Dee is going to make a really good mayor of this city.”

After being deputy mayor for a year, Councillor Simson will take over as mayor from Councillor Marsh.
