This is a great opportunity for us to start breaking the Tory hold on our councils and have members of the council who represent the entire constituency.
Meet your candidates
Richard Ashworth – Waverley Borough Council
I have lived in Ockford ward for 7 years and in Godalming for 30. My children and grandchildren have attended Moss Lane, Broadwater, Rodborough, Chandler and Green Lane (where I was on the PTA). Three were at Godalming College and one taught there. Two or three times most weeks I can be found early in the morning swimming at Broadwater Leisure Centre.
I joined the Labour Party in 2015 in time to vote for Jeremy Corbyn as leader. I am passionate about fairness, especially for young people saddled with debt and little chance of climbing the mortgage ladder. More social and affordable housing is urgently needed, especially for the young, as well as better rent control and more help for those with mental health issues.
Lewis Curtis – Godalming Town Council
I have lived in the Godalming area the whole of my life. I am passionate about politics and making a difference in the world, and I want to start by serving the local community as your councillor.
I am committed to doing everything in my power to making sure everyone has a voice in our community.
I have lived in a council house for most of my life, so I understand the importance of social housing, and investing in it. I will make sure the people have someone to fight for them on this issue.
