I AM VOTING TO PAY MORE TAX FOR MORE POLICE
There’s a consultation out at present by Kent Police on how much to increase Council Tax for policing.
I am voting for Option 2 – INCREASE BY 5%
Improvements over the next 3 years, providing an Extra “Task Team” for Thanet, and further measures to reduce crime and increase public confidence.
Option 1 is INCREASE BY 2.5%
No growth and improvements and will almost certainly require significant reductions in policing numbers.
