Our current mayor for 2023/24 is Councillor Kieran Murphy
At the meeting of Full Council on 17th May, Diss Town Council elected councillor Kieran Murphy as Mayor for 2023-2024. Kieran is the youngest ever First Citizen of Diss and was only elected as one of three District Councillors for South Norfolk Council earlier this month.
On his appointment, Kieran said, “It was a real privilege to be chosen to hold the honour of Town Mayor, during my tenure I hope to encourage Diss to continue to be a thriving and vibrant town. I would like to thank the outgoing Mayor, Cllr Taylor for all the work he has put into being an outstanding representative for the town and his incredible fundraising efforts for his charities."
