Aga Dychton was elected chairman of Watford Borough Council for 2020/21 at a meeting last night.
Councillor Dychton, who represents the Central ward, will be Watford’s first Polish-born chairman and was welcomed to her new role by Peter Taylor, the Elected Mayor of Watford among others.
On a Facebook post, Mayor Taylor wrote: “She has been doing a brilliant job working at Watford General over the last few weeks, helping to organise volunteers and donations from the community.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Aga and delighted she’s chosen Electric Umbrella and Watford Womens Centre Plus as her charities for the year. They both do so much to serve our town.”
