Complicated this person intercepted a complaint I had lodged about a situation. I found out later they worked in the dept the complaint had been lodged and the took it upon themselves to my home to give verbal abuse. I have now found out they have become parish clerk and I am concerned they will abuse this position seeing what has happened. The council say the investigation is still ongoing 2months since I complained.
As Parish Clerk they are meant to advise and serve the Parish Cllrs and possibly be a line manager for other PC staff. What abuse of that position do you anticipate?
