The Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones received the Commendation in recognition of her services to local government.
The 2018 World Mayor Project is dedicated to women in local government. It features the achievements of women mayors from across the world and honours the best of them. The all-women long-and shortlists included mayors from towns and cities of all sizes who have served with integrity, determination and imagination.
Mayor Ros Jones said: “I am humbled and honoured to have been recognised in these awards. As much as I am the recipient of this recognition, I am absolutely clear that this is an accolade for Doncaster and for the hard work, dedication and tireless support of Doncaster Council staff under the leadership of Chief Executive Jo Miller, my cabinet, councillors and our partners. Without them and our true partnership spirit and ways of working, our achievements would not be as significant and indeed as successful in changing the fortunes of our wonderful borough. Local government is facing severe challenges and has been for a number of years and I am immensely proud of our contribution to making Doncaster the best it can be and supporting our ambitions for its exciting and dynamic future. Our journey continues and I would like to thank everyone for their contributions so far.”
