I have had the pleasure of representing you as Councillor for Merstham for the past four years. As your Councillor, I have been able to help many residents with their issues and concerns.
At the Town Hall, I have chaired the Councilâ€™s Regulatory committee for 2 years and worked on many other Council committees. I was also nominated as the Councilâ€™s representative to the board of Raven Housing Trust. I served for 14 years as an Offi cer with both Surrey Army Cadet Force and Reigate Sea Cadets, working with and supporting hundreds of young people from across the Borough. I have lived in Merstham for 34 years and work locally as a Graphic Designer. I am married to Jackie and with our 3 children we live in Bletchingley Road. As a long standing resident of Merstham, I am well placed to understand the issues and concerns of residents and hope you will support me on May 6th and give me the opportunity to serve you again as your Councillor.
