Scale of complaints against Cllr Sara Randall Johnson

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Devon County Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Devon County Council,

On 25th July 2017 a Meeting of the Health Scrutiny committee was held under the chairmanship of Cllr Sara Randall Johnson, at County Hall Exeter.

Councillor Randall Johnson's behaviour as chair of the meeting was such that a number of the public who attended, and also some who viewed the proceedings via DCC's recording, made formal complaints concerning her conduct as chair.

Will you kindly provide me with some details as to the complaints that were made and subsequently investigated.

Firstly how many complaints were made against Cllr Randall Johnson? Secondly how many came from members of the public and how many from other councillors?

Please describe, using the individual complainant's words as far as possible , the nature of the complaints. (no details of the complainants identities are sought or expected)

Were all the complaints investigated?

Finally, can you kindly give me some idea as to where this incident stands in terms of the complaints it attracted, is it commonplace for a number of complaints to be made about a chairs' conduct or is this a rare occurrence in recent times?

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Tim Todd
