MARY BURNS AWARDS
DAY 19

THE `WILL THE LAST PERSON TO LEAVE SALFORD COUNCIL PLEASE TURN THE LIGHTS OUT' AWARD contd…

…also known as the `Rats, Sinking Ships, Rearranging Deckchairs and Jumping Ship' Award

On Day 2 of the Mary Burns Awards we gave out a special gong for all those Salford Council big wigs who had got the hell out of the fray through retirement, resigning or being resigned to the boot…

Today we hear of another top dog who's jacked in her job…She liked to wear pink jackets…she got a £75k a year salary…and now she's going.

Ladies and Gentlemen. Show your appreciation for the latest winner of the `WILL THE LAST PERSON TO LEAVE SALFORD COUNCIL PLEASE TURN THE LIGHTS OUT' AWARD

SUSAN WILDMAN – Head of Marketing at Salford City Council

Yes, Sue is departing Salford Council for pastures new, after being in post for just four years. During that time her marketing and communications empire mushroomed to over 40 people employed, with budgets hitting over £3million.  And still the Council needed to hive off the marketing of stuff like the Ice Rink and Salford Film Festival to outside private PR firms.

Sue will perhaps best be remembered for putting forward that potty proposal to the Salford Strategic Partnership Executive to "make the use of the city brand compulsory" for the Police, Salford City Reds and Salford City Radio, admitting that, er, "This might be difficult to enforce"…

When Sue first arrived, in December 2005, Salford Council Leader John Merry proclaimed… "I am certain (Susan) is going to help us continue to invest wisely in campaigns which help us achieve our objectives of transforming people's perceptions."

We think that the jury is still out on this one, having a fag and a laugh at the back of the courtroom no doubt…

So, it's farewell to Sue, and her huge salary and her massive budget and multitude of staff and pink jackets.

Ladies and Gentlemen. Please wave your expensively bound `Can You Handle The Truth? In Salford' booklets for the latest winner of the `WILL THE LAST PERSON TO LEAVE SALFORD COUNCIL PLEASE TURN THE LIGHTS OUT' AWARD

SUS-A-A-A-N  W-I-I-I-LDM-A-A-A-N

Applause…
