    Rugby has appointed its first Sikh Mayor; this prodigious honour goes to Kam Kaur, mother of four.

    Kam Kaur, was born in Coventry in 1969, attended Bremond College and Butts College in Coventry.

    She married Bal in 1990, an arranged marriage, the couple moved to Rugby in the early 1990s

    Bal’s father, Gurbax Singh was a passionate politician from an early age, he exported his enthusiasm for politics with him when he came to Britain, today his daughter-in-law has driven his zeal by becoming Mayor of Rugby

    Gurbax Singh has many accreditations to his name along with meeting the Conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher

    The couple have four children, Harjinder, aged 25, who runs his own business, Av, aged 17 and Harpreet, aged 14, who both attend Princethorpe College and Sharon, aged nine, who attends Bilton Junior School in Rugby.

    Bal is a company director and runs Brown And Cockerill Estate Agents in Bilton, Rugby while Kam runs a successful clothing store, Label Outlet on the outskirts of the town.

    As a Conservative councillor for the Overslade ward since 2002, Kam was inspired to enter politics by her father-in-law, Gurbax Singh

    Kam said: "It's a great honour to be the first citizen of Rugby and I'm looking forward to me year in office. Hopefully I will be able to fulfil the role and keep up with the high expectations that come with being the Mayor."

    “We would like to congratulate Kam Kaur on her achievements, as Mayor of Rugby we are confident she will serve the communities well as first citizen” said Jaspal Singh Bains, Chairman of Eastern Media Group.

    “There is a need for more Asian women and indeed Sikh women to enter the world of Politics”.

    Sounds as if his son wouldn't jump into the ring -- so his daughter-in-law picked up.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
