It doesn't mean LGC judges are suggesting she's more powerful or important than, say, City Council Leader, Sir Albert Bore (50), or London Mayor, Boris Johnson (57), or even former INLOGOV Director, Sir Michael Lyons (70), author of Labour's recent housing policy review.
It does, however, seem to suggest that those judges see INLOGOV as already, and perhaps increasingly, prominent in the local government world: "a spiritual home for many chief executives", they suggested - complimentarily, we think.
The director herself would more probably mention INLOGOV's collaborative work with other public sector and international organisations - like the recent '2020 Vision' report with business consultants, Grant Thornton.
The Inlogov report was discussed yesterday at a meeting of the Durham Association, a forum of all councils in the county, which issued a statement saying: "The county council and the district councils have today jointly expressed the view that only two options are worthy of inclusion: namely one unitary or three unitary councils for the county area of Durham."
Davis, and his INLOGOV colleague, Chris Skelcher: 'Party politics is integral to the life and role of the local councillor, (but) local Quangos are not constituted on party political lines' and therefore have a degree of independence.
The Inlogov report was discussed at a crunch meeting yesterday of the Durham Assocation, a forum of all councils in the county, which issued a statement saying: "The county council and the district councils have today jointly expressed the view that only two options are worthy of inclusion: namely one unitary or three unitary councils for the county area of Durham."
Yesterday at a special briefing by the Boundary Committee, which will be drawing up the options, chairperson Pamela Gordon appeared to back the Inlogov findings.
The Inlogov findings look certain to intensify the turf war between the county council and the districts in Durham.
Yesterday he claimed that the Inlogov research, which will be discussed tomorrow at a meeting of Durham councils, would strengthen his case.
He is to head Birmingham University's Institute of Local Government (INLOGOV) and will become a professor in public policy.
Sir Michael's latest appointment will see him leading INLOGOV's business activity and its relationship with local government, central government, the private sector and voluntary sectors.
As an independent body, INLOGOV has a reputation for robust criticism of local government activities.
