First elected to the Council in 2002, David represents Norland ward, where he attended St James’ Norland Primary School and lived until he was 18 years old. 

Following university, David qualified as a chartered accountant and has worked abroad in Germany and Australia, in commerce as well as finance, and in the voluntary and church sectors.  He also served in the Honourable Artillery Company for seven years in the 1980s. 

As a Councillor, he was Chairman of the Family and Children’s Services Scrutiny Committee for five years from 2012, and following the Grenfell Tragedy in 2017, served on the Council’s Leadership Team, initially having responsibility for finance and later for children’s services.

The Mayoral Charities this year are the Rugby Portobello Trust and the Clement James Centre.

Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea, Cllr David Lindsay said:

“It is a great honour to have been elected Mayor of Kensington and Chelsea. 
 

My two Mayoral Charities, the Rugby Portobello Trust and The Clement James Centre who’ve worked in North Kensington for many years, played a vital role in the time of emergency following the Grenfell Tragedy, and continue to work hard supporting the North Kensington community to this day. 
 

I really look forward to working with these two fantastic charities and with the Deputy Mayor to champion opportunities for young people in our borough.
 

This year also marks Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and I am excited to celebrate this momentous occasion with residents across the Royal Borough.”

David has appointed Cllr Janet Evans as his Deputy Mayor, who has represented Courtfield ward since 2018. The Mayoral Chaplain is Pastor Mark Ryan, Senior Minister of Kensington Temple.
