10 Feb 15 – Councillor Pay Rise – Outrageous, arrogant and out of touch

I can’t believe that Hartlepool Councillors last week voted to give themselves a 2.2% pay rise. When most people are struggling in a difficult economy, many facing pay freezes or no pay increase at all it is ridiculous for Councillors to give themselves a pay increase. In a time of austerity front line services should be the priority not Councillor allowances. This pay rise is outrageous, arrogant and shows how out of touch this council is from the people.
