Elect of­fi­cers

RE: Let­ter: Change the pol­i­tics, not the elec­torate, May 24.

Shame we can’t vote in or out the se­nior ex­ec­u­tives of the coun­cil – or put them on per­for­mance-re­lated pay – the politi­cians don’t seem to have any real con­trol over the ex­ec­u­tive, they make prac­ti­cally no dif­fer­ence to the way things are run, are paid a frac­tion of the se­nior ex­ecs’ salaries and are largely im­po­tent and ir­rel­e­vant. Let’s have full-time, elected se­nior of­fi­cers and stop the pre­tence that “cab­i­net port­fo­lio hold­ers” have any real power to do any­thing – just look at the Chil­dren’s Ser­vices fi­asco!
