Councillor Rosanna Currans elected as Mayor of Dartford
The Mayor, Councillor Rosanna Currans was first elected to Dartford Borough Council in 2014. Councillor Currans was born in London and has been a Dartford and Brent Ward resident for over 35 years. She is married and has three sons ranging in age from 35 to 51 and three grandsons between 12 and 14.
Councillor Currans is now retired but has had an assortment of jobs over the years including treading the boards, circus girl, bar maid and secretarial work interspersed with bringing up children. Her last job was as the Office Manager for Wimpey Construction Management on what became known as Bellmarsh Prison in Woolwich.
Councillor Currans' interest in local affairs was sparked by the four day power cut in Dartford in 2009. She felt affronted by the meagre offer of compensation from EDF and decided to mount a campaign to secure proper recompense for the inconvenience caused to residents. This was ultimately successful and led to increased compensation payments and a generous donation from EDF for the benefit of the community in general. Councillor Currans began taking more of an interest in local affairs and this led to her election as a councillor for Brent Ward following a by-election in November 2014.
Councillor Currans is currently the Chair of the Dartford Conservative Club, sits on Dartford East Health Centre's Patient Participation Group, and regularly attends meetings of the Friends of Hesketh Park in addition to her other duties as a councillor.
Outside of the Council Councillor Currans' main interests are her family, reading, lunching, meeting people, helping constituents with their problems, and watching Australian soap operas.
