Mayor of Kingston Senator Delroy Williams was sworn in as the Chairman of the Kingston and St Andrew Municipal Corporation (KSAMC) in December 2016. He serves as the Councillor responsible for the Seivwright Gardens Division of the KSAMC. 

Senator Williams is a past student of the University of the West Indies and the Calabar High School, where he played football and was a part of the Manning Cup Team.

He enjoys ancient history, philosophy, art and sports. Senator Williams also serves on the board of the National Solid Waste Management Authority (NSWMA). 

Since his appointment, his vision for the city of Kingston has been to transform the city into a sustainable tourist and business hub as well as creating a network of Caribbean cities for regional integration and cooperation. 

He is known for his interactive and inclusive approach towards local governance. Mayor Williams is a firm believer and supporter of the creative industries and often times patronizes events and members of the creative community. 

His greatest project to date is the Ward Theatre Restortion Project which is aimed at having the Theatre fully restored and functioning before the end of his tenure.

“We are nothing without the imagination” is perhaps his favourite remark which he often shares with youth and residents of the city to encourage them to think of viable solutions to the problems they face as a city and monetize their creative ability.
