The highest paid councillor in the country?
Well certainly a contender. It's Merseytravel's fat controller, Labour Councillor Mark Dowd, who I am told rakes in a cool £60k thanks to a cosy deal with the Tories who keep him in power,
Sefton Council salary: £8850
Merseytravel basic: £5,688
Various "special responsibility
and that was for 2008/09, no doubt it's gone up since them. Thanks to the whistle blower who passed me the figures.
Aren't other Labour councillors ashamed of such greed?
