Dear Resident/Business Owner,

I'm honoured to have been selected to stand for my home divison of Cheriton, Sandgate & Hythe East in the Kent County Council elections in May this year for the Liberal Democrats.
In 2017 I came second in the same area, a clear second behind the Conservatives. In the 2019 District Elections, I then took the formerly safe Conservative seat of Sandgate & West Folkestone (which is a large part of the Cheriton, Sandgate & Hythe East county division) with 55% of the vote.

At the Folkestone and Hythe District Council Full Council meeting on 24th February, an amendment to the General Fund Medium Term Capital Programme was proposed by Lib Dem Group Leader Tim Prater and Green Group Leader Lesley Whybrow.
The amendment, pretty much identical to a similar one moved in 2020, fell 13-16. It would have removed the required £29m funding for Princes Parade Development from the Council's Capital programme.

- To remove the words 'at Princes Parade' from the corporate plan;
- To remove the budget funding for the project.

In the 2017 County Council elections in this area, Lib Dem Tim Prater came a clear second to the Conservatives.
In the 2019 District Elections, Tim took the formerly safe Conservative seat of Sandgate & West Folkestone with 55% of the vote. He's a proven winner.
As in 2019, the local Lib Dem and Green Party branches have agreed not to stand against each other to try to maximise our chances of bringing positive change, this time at Kent County Council. Shepway Green Party is backing Tim Prater to beat the Conservatives in Cheriton, Sandgate & Hythe East in the County Council elections this year.
