The Ex-Mayor Barry Dodson

This section brings together all relevant posts on Rotherham Politics that form part of our investigations, due-diligence, into the suitability of Cllr Barry Dodson to be Rotherham’s ‘first citizen’ from May 2014.

Labour Group is ultimately responsible for Barry Dodson’s position as the current Deputy Mayor. The citizens have a right to their own views on this. Rotherham Politics gives ordinary folk a way of expressing them on this, and any other issues featured on these pages.

Barry Dodson is emerging from this process, as someone quite unsuitable for the Office of Mayor! Why did Labour Group choose him?  They know what he is like!

I cannot understand how this alleged racist can possibly carry out all of his functions, especially those that involve dealing with Rotherham’s ethnic minorities?

Anyone with further information, is welcome to contribute. Please send information/testimonials to Rothpol.

Will no one put an end to a family’s torment?
