Cllr Rosalind Binks was born and raised in Thanet. She is married with one grown up daughter and has lived in Beacon Road ward for over 20 years. Until her recent retirement she was in charge of trading for several Financial Institutions in this Country and abroad. She believes that Broadstairs is a brilliant place to grow up and to retire to. She is concerned by issues of unemployment and thinks that this is the biggest single challenge for the Council.
