We rel­ish dream of a demo­cratic dawn

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - ‘when I Saw The Car I Burst Out Crying’ -

Towns­peo­ple have felt for many years that the town’s voice is in­audi­ble in dis­cus­sion of poli­cies for this large, half-ru­ral, hal­fur­ban bor­ough.

The Town Fo­rums be­lieve that we towns­peo­ple would be bet­ter served by a more lo­cally based sys­tem of gov­ern­ment, sim­i­lar to that of Ten­ter­den, Hythe, or Folke­stone, sit­ting com­fort­ably un­der the over­all bor­ough ad­min­is­tra­tion. We’d like our town to vote YES in a pe­ti­tion to go to the coun­cil, ask­ing for a “Com­mu­nity Gov­er­nance Re­view”.
