Cllr Vic Broad (Tadworth & Walton)

This will be the third time that I will have asked you to vote for me as your local Councillor. I do so by asking you to judge me on my record of achievement. Since I was first elected eight years ago, I have progressed to becoming Leader of the Council.

Cllr Jamie Paul (Preston)

I’m 25 and I’ve lived in Tadworth and Walton-on-the-Hill all my life, and have seen it expand and change during that time. I know it’s a great place to live with an excellent sense of community and I’m very proud to say I come from this area.I was educated locally and will always remember swimming at Banstead Leisure Centre – where would we be without these facilities? I was very glad when the Conservative Borough Council decided to invest in the new centre.

Tim Archer (Chipstead, Hooley and Woodmansterne)

I grew up in Chipstead and, after living in London for a number of years, moved back here five years ago. Chipstead is now home again to me and my young family. I work in finance in central London and so I regularly commute into London Bridge, so understand the challenges that brings. 

Gareth Owen (Reigate Hill)

As a long term local resident myself, who has commuted from, raised a family, and seen many changes in the borough over the years, I have a strong sense of belonging to the community in which I live.
