Statement to voters

    I love living in Westgate and am actively involved in the community.

    Full statement

    I’ve worked in Thanet Libraries and Kent Community Health, and as a volunteer for several years with Thanet Citizens’ Advice, which gave me an insight into the people’s resilience in this area and the daily challenges they face.

    I believe vested interests, including developers who would turn our beloved farmland into housing, threaten our coastal community. We should not let their plans dictate our lives uncontested.

    I know how services like libraries fulfil many functions: educating and informing people, bringing them together, providing a focus for local activities and safe place for parents to take children, and giving people online access. If KCC cuts services like this to save a little money, the damage will be considerable.

    I also believe KCC must work with bus companies so rural residents can travel safely, comfortably and affordably for work and leisure.

This statement was added by Abi Smith, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
