‘Sunny Jim’ the garrulous portfolio holder for Environment who has possibly presided over one of the most damaging chapters in Waverley’s recent history has been rewarded for his failure by the Tory Executive.
Following the recent reshuffle, Councillor Andrew Bolton will now manage the extremely hot, Air … (something we heard a lot of from Sunny Jim)… Quality scandal, which ‘SJ’ has presided over for the last couple of years!
Could Waverley earn the Private Eye award in 2018 for …
Councillor Bolton, the man colleagues describe as, the most boring accountant councillor they’ve ever met.. and who achieved almost nothing whilst holding the economic development portfolio… now hands the role over into the safe hands of Councillor ‘Sunny, Jim Edwards’ the man who has failed to manage the Farnham Air Quality issue now under the ‘independent’ microscope of a neighbouring local authority! A scandal which has already seen three senior staff members leaving Waverley, including the Air Quality Monitoring Officer and the man nicknamed ‘The Omen” one Damien Roberts who, together with Paul Wen-am-I-leaving jointly presided over the botched 2016 Air Quality Status Report. Mr Roberts has now taken himself off for pastures new having, ‘thoroughly enjoyed his time at Waverley,’ and Wen-am-I-leaving has retired!
So – when is that ‘imminent’ air quality report going to arrive?
