List of municipal commissioners for finance of Stockholm

This is a list of municipal commissioners for finance of Stockholm (finansborgarråd). In English, the title is often translated as Mayor of Stockholm, because the municipal commissioner for finance has become the top politician of Stockholm municipality since the Stockholm municipal reform 1940.[1]

The office of municipal commissioner for finance was set up in 1920, replacing an older mayor's office. While the mayor (borgmästare) before 1920 was appointed by the government, the municipal commissioner for finance is elected by the Stockholm city council. After a reform in 1940, the municipal commissioner for finance is always representing the ruling political majority coalition in the city. From 1994 the municipal commissioner for finance is also chairman of the municipal council (kommunstyrelsen), a title often called mayor in English.
