Amazing how one bad apple can ruin the whole crop......a case of a big bully having his way for 20yrs and now the people are calling for his head to roll......and guess what.....he has run for cover like all bullies do.....

Go the people of Gore and shame on the weak councilors that allowed that narsicist to operate.....karma wins in the end!!!

CEO leads bullies? CEO likes to get his own way - for 20 years so far. He needs a boot where there is no sunshine as he leaves.

Maybe its his “Young Upstart. Know All. “ Attitude That’s the problem. He maybe clever and smart but not so much in Social Skills And Life Skills He should have started off as a councillor and worked his way up Its a wonder he didn’t want the CEO’s job straight away. As most young ones expect these days. Demote him to a first team councillor and let him prove himself

Gore blimey —- trouble at mill !

At 23 one suspects the young mayor may well have just had insufficient experience to handle the job and the council , regardless of having been elected by the democratic process , albeit too with a very small majority .

One thing in life is to always listen to your elders AND LEARN !!! After five and a bit years the country realised a very young PM was. a WASTE And she finally got the hint 👍👍and quit 👍

From what I understand, the CEO has been in that position in Gore for close on 20 years. Prior to that I believe he was a "Corrections Officer". From reports over the years, he has introduced and overseen a bullying culture. Reports include bullying an accountant, who came from the UK, so badly the person had a breakdown and returned to the UK with his family. Some time later, the CEO reportedly turned up on his doorstep in the UK unannounced and with out invitation ! The CEO was given a new contract by the ex-Mayor just before the local election that saw that ex-Mayor ousted after 18 years in the position; normal and democratic protocol would have had the…
