I am very pleased to be the Conservative candidate for County Councillor for Ashford Central. I have been the County Councillor for Ashford Central for 4 years and a Borough Councillor since 1999. I have lived in Ashford for over 45 years so understand the area very well. By being re-elected as a County Councillor, I will represent residents and make sure their views are heard on Ashford town centre reset.
It is a huge privilege to represent the residents of Ashford Rural East on Kent County Council. I work closely with parish councils and Ashford Borough councillors, making sure our voice is heard at KCC, where I also serve as Cabinet lead for Adult Social Care and Public Health.
I’m Graham Galpin your Conservative Candidate for Ashford East in the Kent County Council Election on Thursday May 6th. Helena and I have lived in an old part of Ashford at Barrow Hill for 37 years; our children went to the local schools and both now live in the Ashford East Division.
It has been an enormous privilege to represent the people of one of the loveliest parts of England on Kent County Council. My division is centred on the ancient town of Tenterden and includes the beautiful villages of Biddenden, High Halden, Kenardington, Stone, Appledore, Wittersham, Rolvenden and Newenden.
I have spent almost seventeen years in Ashford Borough and I have a good grasp of the issues that we all face. I served on Ashford Borough Council from 2011 to 2015, including two years as Cabinet Member for Planning & Development.
