Maidstone Borough Council – Park Wood Ward
Dan Wilkinson Labour
473 votes not elected
6 Finch Court
The 36-year-old warehouseman and trade union rep has a background in homelessness charity work and campaigning to protect public services from cuts. Dan said he was passionate about preserving green spaces and protecting the environment.
Dan is the acting chairman of the town’s constituency Labour Party and was previously a candidate in the 2018 Maidstone borough council elections, where he contested the Park Wood seat and lost out by just 24 votes.
He was brought up in Marden and educated at Maidstone Grammar School.
Dan said “It is an honour to be selected to stand for Labour in Park Wood ward which is an area I know well. Labour has worked constantly on the Council and with residents to bring the Heather House refurbishment and replacement proposals forward. I am critical of the time this process is taking. As someone who prioritises a transition to cleaner, greener and inexpensive modes of transportation I realise the inadequacies of our public transport across the borough. Luckily Park Wood is on the one fairly decent bus corridor in the borough, although it needs to be upgraded to a 5/10 minute interval service so people can turn up and go as bus users can in London.”
