Howard Farmer – Whitstable

Howard was chairman of the Whitstable and Canterbury branch of UKIP for four years before recently stepping down. He lives in Suffolk Street, Whitstable, and volunteers with the town's branch of the National Coastwatch Institution. He said: "The reason I and many UKIP candidates are standing is to let the other parties know that they are failing to listen to the people of Kent."

Mike Bull – Whitstable

Mike, 67, moved to Whitstable from New Eltham two years ago with his wife when they both retired.

He said: "If I am elected, I would focus on local matters and represent the views of people regarding issues that concern them most, such as the dreadful state of our roads and unsustainable development."

David Perry – Canterbury City South West

David, of St Mildred's Place in Canterbury, is 76 and retired, but still takes an active interest in UK politics.

He said: "My priorities are to bring back as much democratic power as possible to the local voters, bearing in mind that most council business is dictated and directed by the European Union."

David De Boick – Canterbury West

David, of Priest Avenue in Canterbury, is married to Wendy and has two adult daughters and two grandchildren.

He said: "I'm a retired Kent Police officer but before that, I was one of the first 100 ambulance paramedics in the UK. I'm standing as a councillor because I believe in the community spirit."

Oliver Kent, of Ivy Lane in Canterbury, is standing for Canterbury South East

Sarah Larkins, of Drybeck Avenue in Ramsgate, is standing for Herne and Sturry

Nicholas Bond, of Whitstable Road, Canterbury, is standing for Herne Bay

Brian MacDowell, of Greenhill Gardens, Herne Bay, is standing for Herne Bay
