Why should people vote for me?
The government doesn’t seem to know how to fix the Brexit problem and it will be people in towns like ours who are hit hardest when it fails. I will be fighting to make sure that we don’t pile a bad Brexit deal on top of the wider problems we face.

IndependentYolande Kenward

Why should people vote for me?
Yolande Kenward is hoping to combat council tax and business rates if elected as an Independent MP in June. She is concerned that more shops will shut in the County Town if more is not done to help companies afford their business rates, and has put herself in strong opposition to Maidstone Borough Council’s current councillors, attending a recent meeting to question them over council tax hikes in view of house building in the area.
