Lord Mayor of Sheffield Magid Magid is stepping down this May
He became Lord Mayor in May 2018
The Lord Mayor of Sheffield is to step down this spring, he announced today.
Magid Magid said it has been an "absolute honour and privilege" to represent the Broomhill and Sharrow Vale ward, and will not stand at the local elections in May.
He became the youngest Lord Mayor of Sheffield aged just 28 in May 2018, and quickly went viral with his inauguration photo.
Since then, he has rarely been out of the local headlines in Sheffield, giving a talk at Sheffield Uni for GeogSoc, launching a suicide prevention charter as part of his focus on mental health, and famously declaring Donald Trump a "wasteman", saying he is banned from Sheffield.
Mr Magid said: "Meeting so many amazing people and solving problems, to then see the impact it has on people, is truly fulfilling. It has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done.
"Regardless of what I do post-May I will always have my community and Sheffield at the heart of it," he added.
