How the other half live! That’s the claim from Old Town LibDems in Eastbourne.
Should our councillors be paid more?
Here’s the Old Town LibDems: “Recent data released by Green-run Brighton and Hove council shows cllrs there receive a basic allowance of £13,360 a year.
Conservative-run East Sussex County Council provides allowances of £13,149 a year.
In Labour-run Hastings, cllrs receive £6,150 a year, with the average across Sussex being £4,642.
What about Eastbourne? Here in Lib Dem-run Eastbourne, cllrs receive a basic allowance of £2,808. Food for thought!”
