Chief Executive to quit Barnet?
Word reaches me that Barnet Council Chief Executive Leo Boland has recently applied for another job. I have no idea if this is true or not. Perhaps Mr Boland would be kind enough to post a message on this site to confirm or deny the story as I am sure everyone would like to know his intentions.
Given that Mr B earns somewhere north of £175,000 a year, and has the cabinet eating out of the palm of his hand, it is hard to understand why he would ever want to leave Barnet, unless there is something in the Auditor’s forthcoming report which might affect his future earning potential?
According to my source, Mr Boland applied to two councils, but failed to be selected on each occasion. Here's hoping for third time lucky.
