Shannon Saise-Marshall is standing for election in Chertsey Riverside and local MP Ben Spencer predicts she will be a 'force on the Council'.
Shannon describes herself as a 'proactive and assertive Chertsey resident' who will fight the corner of her community. She is particularly keen to preserve Chertsey's heritage and greenspaces as well as ensuring that Runnymede Borough Council provides value for taxpayers' money.
She says, "I have been volunteering throughout the pandemic, assisting residents with shopping, prescription collections, and lending a hand at the vaccination roll-out at Chertsey Hall. As your local councillor I will work tirelessly for all our residents."
Shannon is chair of a Royal British Legion branch and a military spouse.
Her top three manifesto pledges are: 1) protecting the local environment and clamping down on fly-tipping; 2) progressing the flood alleviation scheme to protect Chertsey residents; 3) taking pride in Chertsey and supporting local shops as well as scrutinising local development for its appropriateness.
Dr Ben Spencer, MP for Runnymede & Weybridge, adds, "Shannon is a vocal and determined community champion. I have no doubt she will be a force at Runnymede Borough Council on behalf of Chertsey Riverside residents."
