Council Elections 2016

Today, across the country there are elections taking place. Here in Elmbridge, we are voting for a Police and Crime Commissioner, and for every council seat in the new electoral wards. The Conservatives are fighting every seat, in every ward – the only party in the borough to do so. As an MP, I work closely with councillors on Elmbridge Borough Council, and I see the positive impact that outstanding councillors, with good local knowledge and strong links to communities, can make.

The Conservatives here in Elmbridge are standing on a record of providing value for money. Over the past 10 years, the Conservative controlled council has kept down council tax, whilst at the same time protecting and improving local services, like free parking schemes to support our small businesses. Locally, I’ve worked with Conservative councillors on issues from the noise of flights from Heathrow, to the community hospital review.

The Conservatives candidates are a dedicated, knowledgeable local team. You can read each of the local manifestos here. So, please support the Conservative candidates today, to keep Elmbridge in safe hands.
