Welcoming the new Conservative Councillors


Cllr Martin Salmon, Folkestone East (Folkestone Town Council)

The Worshipful Mayor of Folkestone, Cllr Peter Gane, Folkestone Cheriton (Shepway District Council and Folkestone Town Council)

Cllr Sue Wallace, Folkestone Harbour (Shepway District Council and Folkestone Town Council)
Well, it's been another busy few days for defections from Shepway Lib Dems. I welcomed Emily to the team a couple of weeks ago, but it's about time that I extended the same welcome to Cllr Martin Salmon of Folkestone East, who has also joined the Folkestone Town Council Conservative Group. Meanwhile, Peter Gane and Sue Wallace have now both confirmed that they have joined the Conservatives on both Shepway District and Folkestone Town Councils. By my reckoning, it is the first time that we have had a Conservative District Councillor in Cheriton since 1983. I don't know the last time that Folkestone Harbour was 100% Conservative, but you would have to go back to the 1980s, if not further.
