“Front Office” – Four Month Update

I have recently received the stats for Councillors’ case-work submitted through the “Front Office” system up to the end of April 2011. 

The main figures for the four months Jan-April 2011 are below, with the May 2010-April 2011 figures following in brackets:

                         Cllr Mark Ralph (Peppard) – 24 (56)

                         Cllr Azam Janjua (Church) – 16 (19)

                         Cllr Andrew Cumpsty (Caversham) – 16 (43)

                         Cllr Jamie Chowdhary (Peppard) – 9 (12)

                         Cllr Jenny Rynn (Kentwood) – 9 (20)

                         Cllr Tim Harris (Church) – 6 (23)

                         Cllr Dave Luckett (Caversham) – 5 (14)

                         Cllr Fred Pugh (Mapledurham) – 5 (12)

                         Cllr Emma Warman (Kentwood) – 5 (12)

                         Cllr Jeanette Skeats (Thames) – 1 (9)

                         Cllr David Stevens (Thames) – 1 (4)

                         Cllr Kirsten Bayes (Redlands) – 34 (72)

                         Cllr Gareth Epps (Katesgrove) – 23 (115)

                         Cllr Chris Harris (Tilehurst) – 12 (29)

                         Cllr Ricky Duveen (Tilehurst) – 11 (43)

                         Cllr Peter Beard (Tilehurst) – 9 (28)

                         Cllr Glenn Goodall (Redlands) – 3 (37)                      

                         Cllr Warren Swaine (Katesgrove) – 3 (13)

                         Labour

                         Cllr Pete Ruhemann (Southcote) – 67 (94)

                         Cllr John Ennis (Southcote) – 57 (135)

                         Cllr Jo Lovelock (Noroct) – 55 (99)

                         Cllr Tony Page (Abbey) – 47 (153)

                         Cllr Rachel Eden (Whitley) – 35 (111)

                         Cllr Paul Gittings (Minster) – 29 (49)

                         Cllr Sarah Hacker (Battle) – 29 (38)

                         Cllr Mike Orton (Whitley) – 24 (60)

                         Cllr Deborah Edwards (Southcote) – 23 (54)

                         Cllr Bet Tickner (Abbey) – 22 (71)

                         Cllr Chris Maskell (Battle) – 21 (29)

                         Cllr John Hartley (Park) – 18 (64)

                         Cllr Gul Khan (Battle) – 10 (38)

                         Cllr Marion Livingstone (Minster) – 9 (20)

                         Cllr Graeme Hoskin (Norcot) – 7 (16)

                         Cllr Mohammed Ayub (Abbey) – 3 (11)

                         Cllr Deborah Watson (Minster) – 2 (11)

                         Cllr Peter Jones (Norcot) – 1 (5)

                         Green

                         Cllr Rob White (Park) – 229 (696)

Once again each party has a spread of activity levels based on this one measure. It is ironic that some of the hardest working Councillors (such as Wazir Hussain and Kirsten Bayes) lost their seats in the May local elections!

As I have often stated this is just one measure of Councillor activity and it should be borne in mind that some wards generate less casework than others and there are more ways of serving our constituents than just entering (sometimes trivial) cases onto the Front Office system.

  1. Is it ironic, Richard? I’d suggest it was perhaps a sign of those councillors who knew they were in deep electoral trouble pulling out the stops! I’m sure Wazir is a decent man, for example, but I don’t exactly remember him topping these lists in previous years…
