A Parallel Universe?

Rotherham Politics recently reported on the case of Roy Hunt, part of which related to the fact that he had thought himself underpaid as a Town Council Clerk, on circa £40,000!

Roy Hunt. formerly a Rotherham Borough Councillor 1975-1979, Ex-Wales parish council clerk* and the sacked Dronfield Town Council Clerk had clearly lost contact with reality. Apparently propelled by the same sense of entitlement that afflicts RMBC to this day, he thought public money could be used for his own benefit, helped himself and has paid a heavy price for his stupidity.

Imagine my surprise then, when I stumbled across another potential example of fantasy reality, in a parish council clerk in Rotherham!

This time I write of the Anston parish council clerk who is also simultaneously, Responsible Financial Officer for Eckington town council, Michael Gazur!

‘Two Jobs’ Gazur, describes himself as Chief Executive Officer of Anston parish council!!!

Anston parish must be the only one in the land to employ the services of a Chief Executive Officer, as opposed to the parish clerk that all the others are content with having?

See Rikipedia entry for Michael Gazur.
