First published in News

A council boss is due to get a one per cent pay rise.

Maldon District Council approved the raise for chief executive Fiona Marshall and the authority’s strategic director, in line with the one per cent pay increase already approved for staff this financial year.

Last month, councillors agreed to overhaul the senior management structure and save up to £180,000 a year.

There are seven heads of service, a chief executive and a strategic director, with pay scales ranging from £53,025 to £103,020.

Some could be made redundant as the council will receive £453,000 less from the Government than the last financial year – a drop of 41 per cent compared to five years ago.

Why do *WE* pay this woman £104k per year?

Disgraceful that she has a self-appointed pay rise, why not sack her and get somebody else in to do the job for half the money, it's hardly difficult after all.

Hardly a pay rise when it's less than inflation...

I started my own business over 30 years ago and have been earning substantially more than she is paid for several years. Any what about you AAV? Still on benefits eh?

And the point is AAV, she doesn't make anything, she doesn't do anything, she doesn't employ anybody....she's just a figurehead so why should she be paid more than the Prime Minsister, a doctor, a head teacher or a senior nurse?

She's massively overpaid and only worth £40k + pension per year, no more.

And yet Reg, you're on here with us "benefits claimants" moaning about others pay packets, after all your success in life I'd imagined you on a secluded private desert island somewhere, and I was getting all angry, thinking how there's no way you should have earned all that money and how it wasn't fair.

She's not massively overpaid, sounds like you're about 15 years out of touch, us benefits claimants can earn up to approx. £16k, so £40k is hardly realistic for a role such as this it now.
