My name is Keith Davies and I am the Mayor of Sandwell which is a large Metropolitan Authority in the West Midlands.
I wanted to start a blog to share with everyone my duties, some of the wonderful events I am invited to and to give an insight into what it’s like to have the honour of being Mayor.
I started my political career in 1986 and have represented the Smethwick ward for more than 20 years. During this time I have held many varied roles and been involved in many successful initiatives. I represent Sandwell on the Board of the Police Authority and am the Chair of Governors at Ferndale Primary School and the Committee Chair at Tanhouse.
My Mayoress is my wife of more than 40 years, Pat, who represents the Hateley Heath Ward and if you would like more information about us please visit my website.
