Freddie Tshiaba is seeking a mandate in Weybridge Riverside to scrap Sunday parking charges and restore Weybridge Hospital.
He is standing to represent the town, where he is a resident with his wife Ann, at the Elmbridge Borough Council elections on Thursday 5 May.
On the parking point, Freddie explains, "We need to support our town centre to rebuild from Covid and that it why I disagree with the decision of the Liberal Democrats and Residents Association groups running the Council who have increased parking charges and introduced charging on Sundays. It is the wrong priorities at the wrong time - I am campaigning to reverse this and ask for your support at the ballot box."
On the hospital, Freddie knows the rebuild is top of the list for many residents and shares frustrations that the local NHS has not moved faster. If elected he will join Dr Ben Spencer MP and Weybridge County Councillor Tim Oliver in driving this forward.
Freddie would also see himself as a defender of Weybridge's open spaces and character if elected as a councillor. He adds, "I will support a Consrevative administration to pass a Local Plan to manage development and protect our green spaces - we must ensure new builds are appropriate and consider the pressure on local roads and infrastructure."
Freddie has a masters from the London Business School and experience as a management consultant, so brings expertise to Elmbridge Council to assist with scrutinising spending and practices and ensuring value for taxpayers' money.
