We came across the following information recently in ‘The MJ’. But the council’s website doesn’t – as far as we can tell – mention it.
SHBC never fails to surprise us. Richard Payne is still shown as ‘Executive Head – Corporate & Deputy Electoral Registration Officer on the council’s website. Why do we have to rely on the ‘trade press’ to learn about staff changes? Also, as you can read, ‘Mr Payne had worked for the council in a senior position for about nine years’. It would be a positive gesture to publish a ‘thank-you’ for his service on the website. But, thinking about it, we don’t recall seeing the relatively recent departure of other senior members of staff recognised on the website. Was the failure ours, or was it the council’s?
