The Mayoralty is administered by the Margate Charter Trustees, these being those elected members of Thanet District Council whose wards lie within the boundary of the old Borough of Margate. These nineteen Councillors are responsible for electing the Town Mayor, who is then Chairman of all Charter Trustee Meetings.
The Mayor is an ambassador for the town and undertakes hundreds of functions of public relations and of a charitable nature during a year in office. In the case of Margate, the former borough was created in 1857, when the first Mayor was elected.
