CAMPION College's Anna-Kay Hudson has been appointed by the Kingston and St Andrews Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) as the 2017-2018 junior mayor for Kingston.

Anna-Kay was last week selected by her peers to sit as junior council mayor from a group of 35 youth councillors from across Kingston and St Andrew.

KSAMC said in a release last week that Kingston College's Chad Rattray was appointed as deputy junior mayor, and Matthew Fulton of Hillel Academy was appointed as the junior chief executive officer for the junior council.

Meanwhile, the release said Matthew McHayle of St George's College was selected as the junior council orderly and Ashley Bradey of St Andrew High School for Girls was selected as the junior council chaplain.

As part of its Local Government Month activities, the KSAMC said it will host junior council meetings and engage the members of the junior council to table resolutions that they believe can help to improve the standards of living in the city.

Anna-Kay, in her campaign to be elected, highlighted that she is a resident of downtown Kingston who is very aware and connected to the issues that individuals face in the city. She also encouraged her peers to select her based on her familiarity with the challenges and her drive to make improvements occur.

Mayor Senator Delroy Williams, in his charge to the junior councillors, encouraged them to look beyond the hype of the opportunity and take this as an avenue to offer substance to the city as the generation to come by effecting change in their own circles and communities.
