So 60% of the people that voted in this poll (149 people voted), think that paying a Councilor the basic £12,000 per year, are not worth it.

Sorry has Tredegar got councillors ?

Well so they say Jacko ,

as for the pay they recieve its a scandal , they shouldn“t be getting anything at all , or only paid on performance , if they deliver what they say they will do , i.e services , roads , health , transport . just to name a few , but they come up with a big fat zero for everything , and they still expect to be paid on time , if not a little earlier please
and they still expect the annual bonus of course <that they all deny getting )
and to add insult to injury if any of them get the sack for not doing a proper job , then they are paid off, with a lump sum and get a pension on top of that for life , aint life great for a tredegar councillor
some will say what I have wrote is all wrong , but is it !!! maybe we should all learn to read between the lines a little more often ,
ps if there are any so called councillors on this forum , please feel free to challenge me , but come prepaired because I sure as hell will be ,

Data protection act I would guess we only need to know what we need to know and what they do we don't need to know.

make two accurate lists one for the items they do well,
and one for the items they don,t do at all,
if you do that you will soon have a very clear view of
thier preformance which most will agree is abominal

Councillors should receive expenses only - this should not be treated as a full-time job. If there was no remuneration there would be a better class of councillor.Unfortunately hot air merchants end up with the task and pay lip-service to the community as a whole whilst being paid for it. Time for change - they serve no purpose and place a burden on the finances of the borough.

Pay them £125,000 providing they don''t use their muppet brains to make decisions

i live in the ashvale area and as far as i am concerned the councilors for my ward don't deserve anything because nothing seems to be being done about all the drugs in bevans ave all the speeding cars that go up north ave or the gangs of kids that roam the streets creating havoc.I think its about time that the cars were left at home and they started to walk around the area day and night and see exactly what''s going on.
System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:22:35
pay them on performance, more they do for this area the more they get paid. oh well! they won''t get much then!!
System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:21:53
They probably get just as much on expenses as well!!!
System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:21:13
Just see what they dont do look at the state of the town and our roads.
System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:20:29

System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:19:47
I thinking they are not worth it because i was crossing the road the one day and i happened to see a council car coming down the road, when the van had passed me i had realised that the man in it was on the mobile phone whilst he was driving at a quite busy road!

A debarcle! The Members of Tredegar Town Council, are inept at everything, and expect local organisations to help them out!
System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:17:24

System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:11:39
Not bad considering the amount of work they do. Should be less in my opinion.
System Poll Poster Posted - 06/12/2008 : 14:11:00
