A new head of spin for Stoke-On-Trent City Council

December 11, 2007 5:15 PM

Despite having made headlines in The Sentinel for spending £23,000 on publicity, Stoke-On-Trent City Council have now recruited a new head of public relations and communications on a £75,000 salary.


The current head of news at ITV Central will be taking the position which has caused many readers and residents of the city to retaliate on the newspaper's website in disgust.Stokecclogo


When asked the question, ‘Do you think the £23,000 monthly cost of the city council's PR team is good use of taxpayer money?  A massive 84.7% of online readers voted ‘NO’.  This new appointment has just added fuel to the fire.


How much longer can Stoke Council continue to ignore the wishes of their electorate in wasting money in this way?
