They will both choose three issues to campaign on for the next year and speaking of his incentives, Aidan said: “Listening to the voices of young people in Kent is what we are here for. Any queries or worries people have is an opportunity for us to tackle them, making a difference during the next year and in the future.”
This year, over 24,220 young people across Kent voted for the candidates they wanted to win. Four people are elected every year to represent Kent, with four deputy members and twelve being elected to community seats. The Kent Youth Council offers teenagers the opportunity to voice issues they feel strongly about to the County Council throughout the next year.
As the students prepare for their year ahead, Gabriel said: “I have a dream of helping younger people, especially those who live in Tunbridge Wells. If people are affected by anything, we can do more to assist this now we have been elected.”
