Hill “could come under pressure to leave” SCC says Municipal Journal

The MJ (Municipal Journal), a leading local government magazine reports that “senior local government sources” have suggested that Suffolk County Council chief executive Andrea Hill could come under pressure to leave after the new political leader is installed.

The MJ examines the situation following the recent resignations of Jeremy Pembroke, leader of the council, Graham Dixon, the director of resources, and Eric Whitfield, the monitoring officer.

A spokesman for the council denied to the magazine that moves were afoot to replace the chief executive.

Ms Hill herself told the journal:

It’s not my intention to leave Suffolk CC. I’m working hard to deliver the best public services to the people of Suffolk. In due course, a new leader will be elected and I look forward to working with them to achieve that objective.

Mary Orton, leader of the senior council officials union, the Association of Local Authority Chief Executives, said they would support Ms Hill if she came under pressure to move on.

The East Anglian Daily Times carried a report based on the MU story.

    She is bringing Suffolk County Council into disrepute. That should be a good enough reason to terminate contract.

    If Andrea Hill wants to stay, there is no reason for her to leave. She cannot be sacked (no matter how much some people who should know better might scream it) because, frankly, she hasn’t done anything that would constitute a breach of her contract. Her job is statutory, so cannot be restructured away, so she can’t be made redundant (and we doubt the council could afford that anyway) so unless she is offered a job elsewhere, Suffolk is stuck with her.
