Fran Kime started this petition to Sheffield City Council

 

The Labour-run council declared they were at “Breaking Point” financially in November. Yet taxpayers are still paying £112,000 for 3 “Group Policy Officers” this financial year. These 3 officers are paid by the Council but do political research and press work for the Labour and Lib Dem groups.

Council taxpayers facing increased annual bills cannot continue to fund political spin while vital services are cut. Proposed amendments to remove Group Policy Officers have been voted down by Labour throughout the austerity years. Councillors must do the right thing when setting next year’s budget on March 6th.

“We call on Sheffield City Council to remove Group Policy Officers from the budget proposals for 2019/20.”
