In May the residents of Kidsgrove went to the polls to elect members to Newcastle Borough Council. It has now been a few months since this date and Newcastle Borough Council is getting into full swing under the control of Labour. In Kidsgrove all of the wards are represented by Labour members, which should give Kidsgrove a strong voice on Newcastle Borough Council.
We thought we would investigate the attendance figures of Kidsgrove councillors and the figures make interesting reading. We have listed the attendance percentage to meetings, which does make interesting reading. It should be remembered that these councillors do get a four figure "basic allowance" and others can claim additional allowances for the roles they have in the council.
Below you can see how your Kidsgrove councillor is performing on attendance to Newcastle Borough Council meetings.
