“I am humbled and honoured to be chosen as Liverpool’s First Citizen”.
Cllr. Gary Millar
As an experienced entrepreneur, Cllr Millar is said to regard the phrase “Pay it forward” as his personal motto, and along with his consort and civil partner, Steve Macfarlane, he hopes to help as many people as possible during his office.
Cllr Millar said: “Growing up, I never once imagined that I would be asked to be Lord Mayor of such a fantastic city. I am humbled and honoured to be chosen as Liverpool’s First Citizen and I hope to work with as many people, communities, organisations and businesses as possible in order to further promote this wonderful city.”
He has chosen to support cancer and homelessness charities and to help vulnerable children, as well as those with special educational needs and disabilities.
As the first openly gay Mayor of Liverpool, he also hopes to create a safe environment within Liverpool for the LGBT youth.
