Cut D03 (Mayor and Mayoral Support)

Surely in times of budget cuts this position could be cut to allow the funding to be allocated to over services that benefit the public who's money is being spent

If we can't afford to fund the CAB and other charities how can we afford a mayor and we can't afford £25000 to subsidise the bowling club either. If as Bill Dixon says it gives them something to do why doesn't he take them out cleaning the streets, seems we're also losing part of the street cleaning gang, it will give Bill and his mates something to do
