Over half of council executive jobs changed hands last year

Over half of the country’s city and town council executives were replaced last year, largely due to the local government elections in March, according to research by local government magazine Binnenlands Bestuur.

Of the 1,480 non-elected aldermen, over 800 were either forced out following the local vote or left voluntarily. A further 100 executive positions were eliminated by council cut-backs and boundary changes.
