SENIOR COUNCILLORS NAMED WITH OFFSHORE BANK ACCOUNTS.

Since the announcement of two senior council members having offshore bank accounts was posted, speculation has been rife. Many Residents have already pointed the finger as to who it could be. We are now naming them. According to ‘Shepwayvox’ they are:

Conservative Leader David Monk and Deputy Leader Jennifer Hollingsbee of Folkestone and Hythe District Council.

Mr. Monk, at present, is both a District and Kent County Councillor and is standing in the Folkestone Central ward hoping to be re-elected next Thursday 2nd May.

Mrs. Hollingsbee is Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Communities and, she too, is hoping to be re-elected in the North Downs West ward next Thursday.

Is it justified for Councillors holding public office to have such accounts and, is it right that such accounts do not appear in their ‘Register of Interests’? In the name of transparency, we only ask the question.

It is not against the law to hold offshore accounts, nor do we imply that both Councillors have done anything illegal.
