Returning Officers

Comment 27th July 2010

I was amazed to find out how much returning officers are paid, only after the problems at places like Sheffield recently.  Whilst there is a bit of responsibility for the role on election day, all the prep work is done during council time by less junior officers.

The ROs are already amongst the highest paid in a council and as most of the work is done during a working day, that money should at the very least go back into the council coffers.

One could suspect some ''old boys network'' at play here because ''thats the way it has always been done'' etc.

Why does this matter?

This will save money or at least see it more evenly distributed.
