Name: Trevor Thompson

Political experience: One term as South Kent councillor
“It’s all about helping people and making our community even better,” said Thompson of seeking re-election in Ward 2. “I’m reaching out and asking the people across South Kent to say ‘Yes We Will’ and offer their support in helping re-elect me so we can build on the success of my first term.”
Over the past four years he has been actively representing the community by consistently attending council meetings, community meetings in Erieau, Shrewsbury, and across the broader community.
Thompson indicated that only through regular community engagement and representation can he bring the messages of South Kent to action.
“My approach to community leadership through council is to strike a balance between strategic progress, financial responsibility, and ensuring that we are getting the best quality for our tax dollars,” said Thompson. “I supported reducing industrial taxes so that we can help to foster increased investment across Chatham-Kent. I also strongly advocated to cut our municipal debt in half so that we can reduce the tax burden and focus on fixing our infrastructure.”
