Council leader named 'Pin-Up of the Month'

Royal Borough council leader David Burbage has been named as February's 'Pin-Up of the Month' by the TaxPayers' Alliance (TPA).

The Conservative councillor for Bray has been recognised by the organisation following the announcement that council tax in Maidenhead and Windsor will be cut by 1.5 per cent this year.

Jonathan Isaby, political director of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said: "For the third year in a row, David Burbage has demonstrated exactly how a local authority can reduce the burden on council tax payers whilst protecting frontline services.

"In Windsor and Maidenhead we have a shining example of how a local authority can deliver taxpayer value for money which council leaders around the country should be seeking to emulate."

The TPA's 'Pinhead of the Month' is Cllr Sarah Hill, cabinet member for finance at Stoke-on-Trent City Council, which is pushing ahead with a 3.49 per cent tax increase.
