Nominations for
Ros Jones
Mayor of Doncaster (UK)

Nominated by Martin K. S., Doncaster:
Mayor Ros Jones has probably the most difficult job of any elected mayor in this country. Doncaster, unlike more fashionable northern cities, lacks influence in Whitehall. UK policy makers, with an eye on publicity, seem to prefer projects and investments that benefit cities like Liverpool, Manchester of Sheffield. Nevertheless, Mayor Jones has established herself as a powerful voice, representing the interests, not only of the City of Doncaster, but the whole of Yorkshire and beyond.
Challenges for Doncaster: It is difficult for a second-tier town to establish a national, never mind an international, identity. Doncaster needs to find its mojo.


Nominated by Teresa McD., Doncaster:
Mayor Jones manages a tight budget with imagination and compassion. Despite government cuts, Doncaster maintains public services and invests in the future.


Nominated by Kevin B., UK:
I recently finished my studies at Doncaster College. Great town, very friendly people. Even my London friends were surprised how much the town itself and the region had to offer.
Challenges for Doncaster: Few people in London or the South know anything about Doncaster.


Nominated by Jo B., UK:
Ros Jones has made a huge and lasting impact on the people of Doncaster. Whilst I do not live in Doncaster, I work in the town. At the heart of everything that Ros does, the decision she makes, is always what is best for the people of Doncaster. She makes time for everybody and anybody and this is why I think she would be a worthy recipient of this award.
Challenges for Doncaster: There is a high number of unemployment and low income families in the Borough of Doncaster but Ros makes it her mission to include all members of Doncaster to have the same voice, she works tirelessly to raise the profile of Doncaster and has an open door policy to everyone, staff colleagues and the general public, Ros Jones has experienced her own family losses during her time as Mayor but instead of slowing down this has made Ros stronger as Mayor.


Nominated by D. R., Doncaster:
Ros, is a hardworking, knowledgeable, compassionate, competent, genuine, kind, realistic, pragmatic mayor. She is the best mayor Doncaster has had.


Nominated by Leeza C., Doncaster:
Mayor Ros Jones is very competent and understands the people of Doncaster and the challenges they face. She is a very caring person.
