Oakham Town Council Paid Former Clerk Richard White £18,000 and they don't want Electors to know this.
As a town Councillor I have spent a year trying to find out who was paid £18,000
The Council refused to give me the basic information. Who had been paid the public
As an elector I attempted to exercise my rights afforded to all electors by the audit act.
I was provided with redacted information an unlawful interference with my rights.
Auditors Grant Thornton have suggested I approach the courts.
I now know as an elector who received the money as I have been able to remove
attempts to redact the name from the documents provided by Oakham Town Council.
The Council is objecting to me publishing details of this payment. due to the non disclosure
agreement between the council and the former Clerk Richard White.
This post and yesterday's is made using information lawfully obtained as an elector
so Oakham Town Councils Chairman has no right to write to me via another member
asking me to remove my blog posts.
As a Councillor I was unlawfully excluded from all the meetings when the matter of the clerk
was discussed so as a Councillor I have no confidential information to reveal.
