So you think you know what a Councillor does?

  • Do you make decisions on behalf of your Council?
  • Spend Council money as you see fit?
  • Fall asleep in meetings and forget what you offered to do?
  • Exhibit extreme behaviour with officers and fellow members?

Perhaps there are better ways of conducting Council business......
