Ukip's Dane Valley councillor charged with threatening behaviour

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?

Cllr Gary Hillman works on the estate where I live in DaneValley .All hours
into the ngt after his 9-5 job Woking for Thanet District Council.. in all weathers..along side his fellow cllrs Gary Taylor..and Roz Dixon. I've been a resident for 12yrs here and I've heard the abuse that they put up with from teens to grown men and women as they pick up the rubbish left thrown around the area. Not just household rubbish but human feaces!! And the vast among of dog shit that there owners can't even be bothers to bend down to scoop it up.So its quite self explainitry really..or for the simpletons who have reported the use of a few swear words...maybe come and pick up the daily fresh shit that's been laid..or chase the gangs in robed cars...robbed motorbikes(and returned them to the owners b4 either being sold on or set on fire!) I'd like to see these people who' SEE no EVIL...only half HEAR..the so called EVIL words said.But Everyone SPEAKS EVIL when it about someone with a tag on them it wouldn't of even made Face Book never mind the Police being involved or local news if it was just a." Mr Hillman" its because he's a cllr and a a member of UKIP.! People need to get a life or get a grip .or maybe go and knock on there neighbours wait for them in the toilet till they have a shit scoop it in a bag wipe there arse...let's see how far you get without any abuse or offensive words being made!!!
