David Curran is excited to stand again as the Conservative candidate for Addlestone North ward.
He thoroughly enjoyed campaigning last year and came within 45 votes of winning a seat at Runnymede Borough Council. By continuing to support residents' local causes, he hopes to get over the line this year.
David says: "If I am elected I will ensure that Addlestone's concerns are heard. I have lived here for close to 30 years with my wife and brought up two children who attended local schools. So I know our community very well and I believe I am well placed to represent your views and concerns.
"In 2019 my wife and I set up a neighbourhood watch with the assistance of our local Conservative councillors. We managed to reduce the drug dealing and antisocial behaviour that was plaguing our park. I want to continue with this theme and have a stronger voice when it comes to working with the police.
"Having a Conservative council will save you money and set the bar high when it comes to delivering services. Conservative-run Runnymede has the lowest council tax in Surrey and I will play my part to carry on this achievement."
David's three priorities are: cleaner streets, better local access to healthcare and GPs, and to work closely with local police to prevent antisocial behaviour.
