ConservativeGordon Henderson

Why should people vote for me?
I go into this General Election having been Sittingbourne and Sheppey’s Member of Parliament for seven years. During that time I always tried to represent my constituents to the best of my ability, often putting their interests before that of the Government. I am happy to stand on that record.

Fun fact:
I was once paid £11 by the BBC for a short story that I wrote. It's the only written work for which I have ever been paid. Problem was the cheque bounced because it hadn't been signed!


Liberal DemocratKeith Nevols

Why should people vote for me?
I am the only candidate who will fight Conservative plans for a hard Brexit, and promote political reform. Having lived here for 13 years, I will be a new face amongst the tired old Swale politicians, and have much experience of advising and helping people through my local government work.

Fun fact:
I got married in the United States of America, to a girl who was from China, on the way back from an early honeymoon in New Zealand, which I had won on a TV quiz show (long story!)

Why should people vote for me?
The Green Party has the best policies for climate change, helping the poor at home and abroad, animal protection, and more. So vote Green for real change.

Fun fact:
I can play and sing a very rude Monty Python song on the piano.

IndependentLee MacCall

Why should people vote for me?
I've lived in the Constituency for the majority my life and I am dedicated to make it a better place to live for everyone. I personally believe i would be a good MP because I have the passion, drive, commitment and motivation to work for the people of Sittingbourne and Sheppey. I will be their loud voice both locally and in parliament.

I'm not a career politician and giving speeches is not my domain but I am a businessman, and finding solutions to problems, coordinating action plans and getting results is my background.

There is a huge amount of work to do in largely neglected parts of our constituency where it is recognized to have some of the most deprived areas of the country. Is it acceptable that it gets worse, not better? No it isn't! Sitting up in Westminster every day doesn't involve rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck in locally and working with people to enable delivery of their aspirations. Which is exactly what i want to do.

I want to be local, available, and accessible to those I work with and for.

A vote for me is one for the community.

Why should people vote for me?
I am not on the loony left and I am not on the raving right, I am right round the bend and I will;

  • Introduce a St. Pancake Day bank holiday.
  • Legalise broccoli.
  • Make Unicorns a protected species.
  • Be consistent.

Fun fact:
I never go too far without a banana.

IndependentMike Baldock

Why should people vote for me?
I am standing in this election to highlight opposition to Swale's Local Plan and the dreadful consequences that will arise from the building of so many new houses. Gridlock, air pollution, and the loss of agricultural land, all of which contribute to poor health and economic stagnation. We need a sensible housing target that meets local need - not developer greed.

Fun fact:
I have become addicted to karaoke in the past 18 months but still can't sing!

LabourMike Rolfe

Why should people vote for me?
People should vote Mike Rolfe because I am young, enthusiastic and have a vested interest in making things better for the future. I have a proven track record of achieving in my previous role as National Chair of the POA and I am friendly, approachable, engaging and prepared to listen.

Fun fact:
I was once using my phone oblivious to the world around me when I walked straight into a lamppost! Ouch!!
