That may seem a strange question a first, but if I'm correct the only things that make you exempt from being a councillor are 1) being subject to a bankruptcy with restrictions 2) Having received a prison sentence of 3 months or more 3) Being in paid employment with the Borough Council.
We have had a lady apply for a vacancy, she is a teacher. During an informal chat she said she is paid by the County Council, which put us in a bit of a quandary. I would imagine that this is normal practice as schools would not all be able to run their own payroll. I can't see any reason why this should stop her being a Town Councillor, she is not privy to anything the County Council does, neither are we privy to her personal records from the C. Council or school. So there's no conflict of interest.
Has anyone any knowledge of this subject? (PS I'm in Wales, our legislation does occasionally slightly differ from England's)
