I see the council is to cut 70 jobs among the lower paid staff, easy targets, but what about cutting the very well paid staff on the top table?
We have some of the highest paid executives in the country and they still want more money than the Prime Minister.
Then there are the ‘golden goodbyes‘, hundreds of thousands of pounds wasted. If they resign they should get nothing, I will bet the people who are going to lose their jobs will not get a golden goodbye.
Why do we need 75 councillors all getting expenses? Then there are the portfolio holders all getting extra money for responsibilities yet when it all goes wrong it has nothing to do do with them.
It must be time for Sunderland to wake up.
I know the people in the city will never vote Tory, but what about all the independents?
They cannot be any worse than this lot. After 40 years we are still on the bottom.
Please use your vote for the good of our city, not our councillors.
