Bor­ough coun­cil doesn’t need a CEO

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Fundraiser -

In 2012, af­ter the de­ba­cle of CEO Kather­ine Kersell’s de­par­ture from Kent County Coun­cil, it was de­cided by Paul Carter, the KCC leader, to re­move the post of CEO.

He stated that the move would save a large amount of tax­pay­ers’ money.

KCC has a yearly bud­get of £2.15 bil­lion and feels that it can man­age with­out a CEO.

Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil’s (ABC) bud­get is con­sid­er­ably less, but feels that it needs a CEO, plus a deputy. It is hard to see the rea­son why.

If ABC re­moved both po­si­tions then the sav­ings re­alised could be used to pro­vide bet­ter ser­vices across the board.
