Reacting to the new political position, Marshall wrote on her X page, “I am deeply honoured and humbled to be chosen to serve as the next Lord Mayor of Leeds for the 2024/25 term.

“Our city is a shining example of compassion, resilience, and unity, and it’s with great pride that my family and I look forward to undertaking the responsibility to serve you.”

BBC reports that Katung is a governor at Leeds City College, which congratulated her on her new post.
