At Thursday night's Thanet District Council AGM Cllr Clive Hart and Cllr Alan Poole were appointed as Opposition Leader and Deputy Leader following their recent unanimous election as leader and deputy leader of the Thanet Labour Group of councillors.

Cllrs Hart and Poole have a strong history of working together at both District and County level over the past decade and both look forward to what will be an interesting pre-election year at TDC.

Labour Group Leader Cllr Clive Hart said "Alan and I have a close working relationship and are also good friends. We've been through similar life and work experiences individually and we've shared many political experiences together, both up and down. We have our homes and have raised our families here in Thanet and between us we share an enormous amount of local knowledge.

The Conservative administration at TDC appears incredibly unpopular with local people and we will be working hard as usual and looking forward to the forthcoming local elections in 2011".


Cllr Clive Hart was a former apprentice served Electrician / Electrical Fitter in the Electricity Industry.
Cllr Alan Poole was a former apprentice served Engineer in the Merchant Navy.

Cllr Hart is the Chair of Governors at a local Special School in Thanet.
Cllr Poole is the Chair of Governors at a local Primary School in Thanet.

Both councillors have a strong history of lifelong personal development and training up to degree level.
