Dane Valley deserves a break. Instead it got an (alegedly) abusive UKIP councillor who lives in London.
At least that's the story according to the Christmas Eve Thanet Gazette Story: Ukip councillor charged with threatening behaviour.
Cllr Gary Hillman, who represents Dane Valley Ward, has been charged with "using threatening, abusive or insulting words with intent", after an disturbance at the Winter Gardens in September.
Cllr Gary Hillman has been made a reserve on the planning committee and sits on the governance and audit and general purposes panels. Maybe UKIP think that living over an hour away from Thanet gives Hillman a special insight into the needs of Dane Valley and Millmead? That, or they have no idea what they are doing.
Would you vote for the likes of Hillman?
