About the chairman
The Chairman of the Council for 2021/22 is Councillor Bilqees Mauthoor who represents Leggatts ward.
Councillor Mauthoor has been a councillor for over seven years and has served on a number of committees including Licensing Committee and Overview and Scrutiny Committee. She is a registered nurse by profession and currently works as a Clinical Nurse Manager. She lives in Watford with her children.
End Violence Against Women and young girls is her theme for the year with a consortium to address ending violence against women and girls in our locality. Working with five grassroots charity partners, the aim is to adopt an action-orientated, education-focused approach, elevating and amplifying awareness around this theme, achieving more through collaboration. The five charities selected to work together are:
- Home start Watford
- Watford Womens Centre
- Stalking Advocacy Service – saferplaces
- Watford Palace theatre.
Councillor Mauthoor's mantra would be “bring pain to a purpose” and she is looking forward to representing the town and working with different communities.
