I am sure that Mr Jones is extremely competent, but I question why every single Commissioner is a public sector retiree well past the peaks of their careers (indeed one of whom previously stepped down citing ill health)?
Surely if we are to make this latest intervention into Anglesey County Council a success a more diverse range of backgrounds and specialities is necessary? For example, one of the three Commissioners sent into failing Doncaster council was Julie Kenny, a business woman and entrepreneur. I would have thought that considering the problems at Anglesey County Council, a number of Commissioners with management consultancy and accountancy skills would be most appropriate.
Unfortunately the current intervention is beginning to look more and more like a gravy train rather than a serious attempt to send in the most suitable and best qualified people to turn around a failing council.
UPDATE: The fifth and final Commissioner will be Margaret Foster, former Chief Executive of Cwm Taf NHS Trust. She retired last year.
