ELECTION: Churchman encourages residents to get out and vote on May 6
Monday 26th April 2021
A LEADING local churchman has urged residents to use their vote at the local elections on May 6.
Rev David Jones, writing in West Farleigh's Lifeline parish magazine, made his plea after the death of respected parich councillor Gary Thomas, of Hunton.
Paying tribute to public servants, he writes: "We owe a great deal to people who serve us in so many ways. People who give up their time and energy and dedicate their lives to make life better.
"So, go out on May 6 and vote and show your support for a group of people who offer their service...and who are committed to serving others."
Conservative candidate for the Coxheath and Hunton borough council ward Simon Webb said: "David's words are very much welcomed because Gary was a very well-respected and decent man who gave so much to his community.
"It has been an election like no other for me and all the candidates because of the restrictions on campaigning."
The candidates in Coxheath and Hunton are:
Peter Lewis (Liberal Democrat)
Claire Kehily (Green Party)
Simon Webb (Conservative)
