Statement to voters
Thanet district election: Broadstairs candidates
Ruth Brackstone Bailey Independent
My message for the electorate is to forget national party politics and embrace a local Independent candidate who has a proven track record of community involvement.
My belief is that national party politics have no place in local governance. As an Independent I am free to vote with integrity without toeing a party line. I regularly attend local community and council meetings and contribute on a range of community issues.
I am involved with the Broadstairs Visitor Information Kiosk, the Thanet Winter Shelter, the Water Gala, Fireworks and Food Festival, litter-picking, co-producing the Busy Broadstairs magazine, etc.
I opposed TDC’s allocation of £3million for office refurbishment at Council. While fully aware that there are increasing financial restraints on Councils, there is a need to prioritise how the money we do have is spent. In a coastal destination the expenditure needs to be on clean and welcoming towns with cheaper parking, clean, safe streets, hygienic toilets, well-kept beaches and open spaces, maintained public buildings, provision for the homeless and protecting our vital Tourism services.
Vote for an Independent candidate who cares about and actively contributes to the area.
