Reader's letter: Prosperous role

The person who writes your headlines certainly has a keen sense of irony, see A Prosperous Future Awaits Us (As I See It, Advertiser, March 18).

I naively thought you became a councillor ­out of a sense of civic duty, not as a money-making exercise.

I cannot believe how much these people are paid. It’s no wonder they all want to be re-elected.

I met our local councillor four years ago come May. He seemed a genuine person but what has he achieved during his four-year term, apart from accruing a minimum of £149,844?

Hats off to Mr Peter Jones for bringing those figures to readers’ notice.

I will certainly be putting my cross in the May elections to someone who is prepared to work on my behalf. ­— CHRIS HOBBY, Newark.
