  1. Whilst in no way detracting from the decades of service and dedication to their community there must be an issue of possible stagnation within a local authority.
    Perhaps a good rule would be that no elected member can be in office for more than two consecutive terms, with a gaps of at least term before being eligible for re-election.


  2. Yu are having a laugh “decades of dedication and service” . A lot of them have presided over the ruin of this town and have not listened to the concerns of the populace. I am beginning to believe that councils should not be run on a party political basis but adopt a non political individual approach when appealing for the public vote. Having said that I will be voting UKIP at the next election.

  3. What, and stop their lucrative income. Not one of these is capable of earning the amount of money they are paid for being Rotherham Councillors!
