Really interesting article in Mansfield Chad about how much the 11 top earners in Nottinghamshire Councils were paid in 2017-18.
When there have been conversations in recent months about bringing all of Nottinghamshire's Council Services together under on roof, this is part of the reason why.
Lots of highly paid senior staff duplicating the same job in different Districts as we pay 9 different chief executives, 9 sets of senior directors etc. Its not good value for money, and of course here in Mansfield we have the additional cost of our Executive Mayor too!
Our candidate for Mayor, George4Mansfield, has pledged to take a massive pay cut if elected and do the job for a salary in line with a normal Council Leader, as part of a package of savings from Councillor's Allowances that will save Mansfield taxpayers £1m.
