Former WSC HR "Consultant" Barry Frew of Orange NSW exhibited the type of ineptitude that typifies management staffing within WSC. More to come on Barry and his stuff-ups soon!
Current Director of Corporate Affairs Carol Medcalf took over from the very capable Emma Darcy, but retained the services of Emma long after she'd moved east. It's a good thing that Carol did, cause she has absolutely no computer literacy skills whatsoever and floundered like a turd floating down the Barwon River when it came to doing any work that involved turning on a PC. Carol has been known for causing mayhem at Brewarrina SC as well. It appears as though knowledge of Carols inabilities is well known within council circles and at a state minister level.
Myrene Lovegrove, accomplished accountant with no interpersonal or computer skills came from the metropolis of Narrabri a few years back and gradually moved the rest of the family to Walgett where they share a council funded residence. Daughter like Mother applies when it comes to interpersonal and computer skills. It seems unlikely that this DNA chain will continue unless someone is paid a lot of money to reproduce with the Helephant - a chore that should be classified under corporal punishment should it ever be reinstated in NSW. Within a few months of Myrene teaming up with Carole Medcalf, the head Accountant and Payroll Clerk left of their own accord and staff satisfaction plummeted.
Ray Kent has gone - thank god. Ray was so well liked that the day he left only one person went to see him off on the Bus south. He could be best described as a puppet for the NSW Labor orientated DLG. Ray is sick with cancer and due to his illness it seems that he could not remember conversations or arrangements that had been put in place. He seemed keen to only top up his super and write his novel and had little interest in the happenings within the shire.
