The comments made by Labour MP Graham Stringer (Advertiser 19/07/2012) supporting an even higher salary for Salford's Mayor than the £69,000 Salford Council have offered him is an absolute joke. Ian Stewart says he will do the job, promise little and deliver more, and stand up for the values of Salford people ? Well, Mr Stewarts values have well and truly been exposed this week when Mr Stewart has been condemned by many for the extortionate salary that he has been offered and is apparently taking ? Mr Stringer is right though, this new system of local government easily exposes values of those in power and as a result if we dont like those values we can vote the person out. Do not blame the Mayoral system for the extortionate salary one intends to take ? He could have taken much less and has failed to do so.
