Neath Port Talbot councillors are grateful to the leader for giving all the local media news of the plans for the redevelopment of the civic centre (e.g. "The End of an Eyesore", Neath Guardian), because they had not been given advance warning of the public unveiling last Thursday. It seems that not even the mayor of the County Borough had been invited to the public presentation.
At least the leader is consistent. He did not invite the previous mayor to the launch of the design process last year.
Could it be that the leader is trying to gain the maximum personal publicity because he is aiming to boost his campaign for a Welsh Assembly candidacy?
