Shepparton Council CEO Bob Laing Calls it Quits

Greater Shepparton City Council CEO Bob Laing has announced via email to staff his resignation today, citing that he has accepted an offer as Executive Officer of Environment Waikato, a large regional council based in Hamilton, New Zealand. Sources indicate that Bob Laing departure was largely influenced by unruly Councilors, including the infamous Councilor Sondrae Johnson's, whose deplorable actions within the council have some Council workers feeling exhausted and irritated. Mr Laing is said to be hanging up his hat on Friday, the 14th of November. The question has to be asked, will Bob Laing resignation create a cavalcade of departures? The up and coming Council election this November should make local politics very interesting. Watch this space.
