On May 10 2021 Dr Nik Johnson was elected Mayor of the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority.  Originally from the North East of England, he trained in London and qualified as a Medical Doctor in 1993 and became a Consultant Paediatrician at Hinchingbrooke Hospital in 2006.  He stood for Labour in two general elections – cutting the sitting MPs’ majority quite considerably.  He was elected as district councillor for St Neots East in 2018 – the first Labour councillor in the town for two decades – and sat on Huntingdonshire District council’s planning committee.

The Deputy Mayor is Anna Smith (Labour)

Fenland District Council – Chris Boden (Conservative)
