Dear Cllr Vince Maple


My wife and I had been employed by Medway Council since 2005 to assist as Count Officers in general elections, local elections and parish elections, Police and Crime Commissioner elections whenever these took place.


Unfortunately, my association in this regard was terminated by Jane Ringham two years ago as she misunderstood my emailed communications to the Council and her in particular and considered me to be in some way disrupting the work of the Council.


I am not a member of any particular bonafide political party at the national level but do have a budding knowledge and dissemination oriented group of which I am the single member that I call The Conservative Libertarian Party of the United Kingdom. It is not registered with the Election Commission and will never be in my life time. I am 66 years of age.


I used to be a supporter of Labour Party under Sir Tony Blair, then I investigated the Liberal Democrats, UKIP ad the Conservative Party by becoming member of these political organisations, but now I do not wish to be a member of any bonafide political party. I wondered whether these associations with politics had anything to do with Jane Ringham terminating my employment at elections for Medway Council or what. I am just an investigative journalist reporting on everyting from politics, humanities and the environment. So I am very puzzled and disappointed.


I have always valued my work for Medway Council in the elections and we have lived here since 1991. I used to issue postal votes as well as work all night with my wife on the day of the election. Now my wife cannot work as we used to work as a team on the same table and she is reluctant to go out at night all by herself when she is now offered a role as Count Officer.


I dearly wish my employment in the Electoral Services of Medway Council to be restored, and in this regard if I have sent emailed communications to Jane Ringham that were seen as having been inappropriate conduct my myself, I sincerely apologise for what I did.


This is why I am writing to you well ahead of the next general election so that Jane Ringham could put me and my wife back on the list of those the Council needs and rely on to assist in elections.


Would you be so kind as to speak to Jane Ringham on my behalf and see if this representation through you as Leader of Medway Council is going to be duly considered?


I look forward to your response.


Yours sincerely


Dr Shantanu Panigrahi
