£218K Council fat cat gets £1400 makeover and we pay for it!

FAT CAT council boss Andrea Hill was accused of “shocking vanity” yesterday after spending £1,474 of taxpayers’ cash on a glamorous new official photograph.

Ms Hill, who is paid £218,000 a year – £75,000 more than the Prime Minister, had the picture taken for the brochures and website of Suffolk county council.

The photoshoot came weeks after it emerged that the 46-year-old chief executive had “leadership coaching” sessions costing £14,000.

My comment: The Council also contributed to her pension which elevated her remuneration for the year to £267,775. When will this madness stop? In addition why would you employ a leader that costs £267,775 a year who needed leadership training?

And here to see two more that look more appropriate for someone joining a dating agency than the Chief Executive of a Council. UPDATE: Pictures have now been removed!
