Councillors

The representative structure of the Council consists of 20 democratically elected members from Athlone and Mullingar Municipal Districts who form Westmeath County Council. The role of the elected council is to determine strategic policy and to represent the general view of the citizens who elected them. The elected members exercise their authority by way of reserved functions, and do so in public session at each of the Council meetings.

The Cathaoirleach and leas-Cathaoirleach of the Council are elected at the annual general meeting which takes place in June.  The current Cathaoirleach is Cllr. John Shaw and the leas-Cathaoirleach is Cllr. Tom Farrell.
