On Thursday 2nd May 2013, Martin Edward Whybrow (Green) (pictured) was elected with 1,659 votes to Kent County Council Hythe Ward. He beat Cllr David Drury Monk (Con) who received 1,346 votes.
In his time at KCC, Cllr M Whybrow has helped shape the debate about KCC’s environmental responsibilities and the investments of the KCC Pension Fund.
We as a team, have not always agreed with him, but he has stuck to his guns and promoted the green agenda making it a central plank of KCCs thinking, for that he is to be applauded.
Martin has lived in Hythe for 25+ years and, among other things, has been a long-standing volunteer at Hythe Town Football Club, and ardent supporter. He founded Transition Hythe (now Hythe Environmental Community Group). He was a trustee of the Folkestone District branch of the RSPCA, He sat on the committee of the community sponsorship scheme which brought a Syrian refugee family to the area, and has been a governor at Palmarsh Primary School.
In his spare time he has stepped up to the crease to represent Hythe Green Cricket Club. He’s a keen birdwatcher, plays badminton and enjoys Tai Chi and meditation.
We thank him for his selfless public service, and wish him well in his future endeavours.
