Is One Green Cllr is Worth Over 30 Others?

Reading Council monitor the workload of Cllrs with “Front Office”. This year there is for the first time a Green Cllr for comparison, the amount of work Rob White has done is extraordinary.

Other Cllrs wait to be asked to do something, Rob and a few helpers, knock on doors all year round seeking out work. I know because I have helped him do this. Part of the reason there is so much to do in Park Ward is because the other two Cllrs, and the one Rob beat in the last election, have low scores.

The numbers have caused some local speculation, Tory and LD.
