Obviously Dr John Marek has had a quiet Christmas, he seems to have had plenty of time to dream up his next half baked, hair brained 'plan' for the long suffering people of Wrecsam. Yes, our Dr Marek is now proposing that when the current Chief Executive Isobel Garner leaves, that the people of Wrecsam directly elects a Mayor to run our affairs.
Dr Marek claims they have been a success in England with Boris being the 'Jewel in the Crown,' but he conveniently forgets those municiplaities where directly elected mayors have been a cause for concern resulting in none other than Eric Pickles MP, a Tory colleague of Dr Marek's sending in teams to monitor the Mayor's performance
Has it suddenly dawned on Dr Marek that he won't win Wrecsam in the Assembly elections and his Plan B could be that he gets the Tory nomination for the first directly elected Mayor of Wrecsam?
I don't really see the people of Wrecsam wanting to waste hundreds of thousands of pounds on a referendum and the salary of a Mayor rather than appointing and paying a professional Chief Executive answerable to 52 democratically elected Councillors.
