Dear Sir / Madam,

Mayoralty and Shrievalty

2022 Aldermanic Appraisal Process

As is customary at this time of the year the Court of Aldermen shares with the Livery the names of those Aldermen who it is supporting for progression to the Shrievalty or Mayoralty over the next year or so.

The Court's position on the Mayoralty for 2022/2023 is already clear but I will recap. At the election of the Lord Mayor later this year, if Alderman Nicholas Lyons is one of the two Aldermen whose name is returned by the Livery to the Court, then he will be elected.

The Court met recently to discuss the Mayoralty for 2023/2024. The Court agreed that Alderman Michael Mainelli shall be supported for the Mayoralty in 2023/2024, subject to an election at Common Hall in 2023. Consequently, if Michael Mainelli is one of the two Aldermen whose name is returned at Common Hall in 2023, he will be elected.

In respect of the Shrievalty in 2022/2023, members of the Livery will be aware that the Court will be supporting Alderman Alastair King DL as the Aldermanic Sheriff later this month. The Court’s position in respect of the following year, 2023/2024, is to support Alderwoman Susan Langley and Alderman Bronek Masojada for progression as a double Aldermanic Shrievalty.

In writing, Members of the Court would also like to record their sincere and formal thanks to the External Panel for their time and diligence in helping to oversee this process once again, with special thanks going to Sir Roger Carr who so ably chaired the Panel on this occasion.

As in previous years, the Court hopes that this process of deciding which candidates it will support for progression to higher Office in the years ahead continues to be of benefit to the Livery.

Yours sincerely,
Gemma Stokley
