Chair and Vice-Chair of the Council

East Suffolk Council Chair East Suffolk Council Vice-Chair

Councillor Anthony Speca

Councillor John Fisher


The Chair of the Council is elected in May each year at the Annual Meeting of Full Council. The Chair provides civic and ceremonial leadership for the council and represents the council at numerous events and functions. The Chair chairs the meetings of Full Council including ensuring that the council's constitution is upheld at those meetings. 


Once elected, the Chair rises above party politics in chairing meetings of Full Council and acting as the council’s representative at formal or public engagements during his/her year of office. The Chair of the Council wears a chain of office when carrying out civic duties but, does not have any formal robes. The Chair is supported by a Vice-Chair, also elected at the annual meeting of Full Council. 


If you would like to invite the Chair of the Council to an event please address any invitations to the Chair’s Secretary.
