Pictured above are the 6 Shepway Councillors that will be standing in the forthcoming County Council Elections.

On reading their statements about why you should vote for them, we discovered that: (from left to right)

Susan Carey, (Elham Valley). is campaigning for better broadband and mobile phone access.

Rory Love, (Cheriton, Sandgate, Hythe East). has a habit for speaking up for local Residents.

Dick Pascoe (Folkestone East) is an ex firefighter.

David Monk (Folkestone West) says: It has been my privilege to represent the Residents of Shepway.

David Owen (Hythe West) says: Hythe is truly home to myself and my family.

Tony Hills (Romney Marsh) is keen on promoting Dungeness beach as the home of modern beach casting.

Err ?  Are we missing something here? Here we have the Leader, David Monk with his chums. Do you think they could be described as Apparatchiks - Towing the Shepway Cabal line? Could we imagine for one moment that all six had a private meeting and discussed Otterpool Town, The Lorry Park and Princes Parade and agreed not to mention it in their election blurb just in case it upset a few Residents. No, no, no, of course not. Would fine, upstanding public servants be so devious and calculating? Of course not.

So, if you want to support a candidate that takes you for a complete moron, vote for one of these.

If, on the other hand, you feel that other candidates will represent YOU and campaign on YOUR behalf on local issues like the Lorry Park, Princes Parade and the massive 12,000 dwelling Housing Estate described as a New Town on your rural doorstep, other candidates are available.
We will be profiling many of them over the next fortnight, giving you the chance to weigh up the runners for yourselves.
