Highest paid mayor in England

I WOULD like to know who runs Hartlepool Borough Council.

I have seen leaders of the town for more than 50 years with no trouble at all running the council.

Our current mayor stated in the Hartlepool Mail that his job only requires him to attend the Memorial Sunday council church service and two other duties.

If that is so, he must be the highest paid mayor in England for what I see as three hours’ work.

Why do the people vote for councillors only to be told what to do by a former monkey-suit wearing mayor?

Voting time is coming around, so listen to the voice of Hartlepool.

And signs saying “Beware, we don’t need a highly paid mayor”.
