Cty Cllr John O'Reilly

John is the Surrey County Councillor for Hersham. He has been a Hersham resident for over 25 years. He is always accessible, by phone, e-mail, on his bike around the Village (he sees first-hand the pothole menace!) or running in Coronation Rec and its brilliant new Green gym!

During his successful election campaign in 2017, John said: “I represented Hersham on Elmbridge Borough Council for 11 years, serving as its leader for six years, protecting services, increasing grants to the voluntary sector and freezing council tax for four years. Parking and the state of Hersham’s roads are among my top priorities. I will not over-promise and under-deliver but will fight for Hersham to receive a fair share of limited resources."

John adds: "I will work tirelessly in the interests of every part of our flourishing community, Hersham Village itself, Burwood Park, Longmore and Whiteley Village. And that means forging close links and cooperation with the Borough Councillors representing Hersham. Our local schools, businesses, the hugely popular Hersham Youth Centre, our fantastic Library and voluntary groups will all receive my enthusiastic support."
