John Cope is our candidate for Walton South at the 2021 Elmbridge Borough Council elections.
John has spent a decade working in education and apprenticeships, and wants to help the Conservatives regain control of Elmbridge Council so that all of Walton can benefit from our plans for a cleaner, greener borough. John notes that the council is relying on reserves and voted in February to put up council tax, despite receiving extra money from the government. He says: "Now is not the time to raise taxes, especially as so many small businesses and residents have been hit financially by the pandemic." If elected John will also improve the Halfway Green and Severn Drive park, support Halfway shops and campaign to keep car parking charges low.
