Cllr Susan Scoccia Council Allowance Set To Triple

There’s a full council meeting at the Isle of Wight Council tonight. One of the subjects under discussion is the Special Responsibility Allowances (SRA) that are paid to county councillors if they chair some of the committees.

The SRA is paid on top of the Basic Allowance of £7,903 that all councillors receive. If the vote goes in favour of the proposal Ventnor’s own fragrant member for the Ventnor West, Cllr Susan Scoccia, will be a few quid better off. Bundles of it in fact. She is currently the chair of the Licensing and General Purposes Committee. It’s proposed that her yearly allowance rocket from £1,977 per year to £6,322. An eye-watering multiple of over 316%!Not only that, but the proposal is that it’s back dated to 17 June 2009, bringing in around another £3,000.

To date we can only recall only one full council vote where _any_ of the Conservative councillors didn’t vote together as a single block. The Conservatives did vote as a single block.

We need informed independents, not idiots reading from a pre-determined script so they can sing in unison. Expose them and the damage they’ve done to our school system and our eco island image (the one thing that could resurrect the Island economy long term).

Get them out and watch how this island progresses/regenerates
