First hour: news review: With Bristol’s LibDem leader Gary Hopkins. Bristol Mayor Marvin Rees fires opposition cabinet members‘Marvin the hissy fit mayor’. pay off of former CEO Anna Klonowski, Bristol Council’s former Chief Exec. – sign a petition to get this looked at properly: Anna Klonowski originally came to Bristol as a temporary appointment to cover the position of Strategic Director Resources in mid-2016. She was then appointed, after a controversial recruitment process, to be the chief executive of Bristol City Council at a salary of £160,000 a year plus benefits. In early September 2017 the Mayor announced that she was leaving for personal reasons. It later emerged through Private Eye (rotten boroughs) and other media, including the BBC and the Bristol Post, that Ms Klonowski had received a large pay out on leaving (£70,000, with some rumours saying more). The total cost of this to the Bristol tax payer appears to be just short of £100,000. The Mayor has so far failed to satisfactorily explain the reasons for the Chief Executive’s departure and the circumstances under which the pay-out was made, on “confidentiality” grounds. What has been revealed, following public questioning, is that the contract of employment did not specify that any additional payment had to be made if the Chief Executive resigned. Given the substantial cost to the tax payer, councillors from across political parties have asked for a full disclosure of how much public money has been spent, what the legal authority was for such a payment and who authorised it.  Link to petition at www.taxpayersmoney.weebly.com; changing back from a Mayoral system?
