Front Office Update – 2013-14

rbc-hex1Some readers have contacted me to request an update on the “Front Office” activity totals I used to publish for each Councillor using the records system adopted by Reading Borough Council. It gives an indication of the case work taken up by Councillors but does not reflect all the other work done by Councillors which includes formal meetings of Council committees, informal community meetings, ward surgeries and appointment to external organisations.

The numbers of recorded “Front Office “ cases by political group for the 11 months to the end of March 2014 are as follows:

Labour (26)

Cllr Jo Lovelock (Norcot) – 144

Cllr Rachel Eden (Whitley) – 127

Cllr John Ennis (Southcote) – 96

Cllr Tony Page (Abbey) – 96

Cllr Jan Gavin (Redlands) – 70

Cllr Eileen McElligott (Church) – 69

Cllr Sarah Hacker (Battle) – 54

Cllr Deborah Edwards (Southcote) – 49

Cllr Tony Jones (Redlands) – 49

Cllr Mike Orton (Whitley) – 42

Cllr Bet Tickner (Abbey) – 41

Cllr Paul Woodward (Church) – 34

Cllr Pete Ruhemann (Southcote) – 30

Cllr Liz Terry (Minster) – 29

Cllr Rose Williams (Katesgrove) – 28

Cllr Richard Davies (Caversham) – 26

Cllr Chris Maskell (Battle) – 25

Cllr Daya Pal Singh (Kentwood) – 25

Cllr Matt Rodda (Katesgrove) – 21

Cllr Gul Khan (Battle) – 20

Cllr Marian Livingston (Minster) – 20

Cllr Paul Gittings (Minster) – 13

Cllr Peter Jones (Norcot) – 10

Cllr Kelly Edwards (Whitley) – 8

Cllr Graeme Hoskin (Norcot) – 8

Cllr Mohammed Ayub (Abbey) – 7

Conservative (12)

Cllr Sandra Vickers (Tilehurst) – 96

Cllr Richard Willis (Peppard) – 96

Cllr Ed Hopper (Thames) – 45

Cllr Jenny Rynn (Kentwood) – 42

Cllr Isobel Ballsdon – (Mapledurham) – 38

Cllr Andrew Cumpsty (Caversham) – 28

Cllr James Anderson (Kentwood) – 17

Cllr Jeanette Skeats (Thames) – 12

Cllr Jane Stanford-Beale (Peppard) – 11

Cllr David Stevens (Thames) – 7

Cllr Tom Stanway (Caversham) – 4

Cllr Tim Harris (Church) – 3

Lib Dem (4)

Cllr Ricky Duveen (Tilehurst) – 64

Cllr Meri O’Connell (Tilehurst) – 44

Cllr Daisy Benson (Redlands) – 20

Cllr Rebecca Rye (Katesgrove) – 17

Green (3)

Cllr Rob White (Park) – 451

Cllr Melanie Eastwood (Park) – 25

Cllr Jamie Whitham (Park) – 18

Independent (1)

Cllr Mark Ralph (Peppard) – 80

I will stress again, as I have done before, that some Councillors use “Front Office” for almost everything while some colleagues prefer to refer their issues directly to Council Officers. I use a mix of both approaches.
