Xingang is our candidate for Molesey East at the 2021 Elmbridge Borough Council elections.
He is a part time magistrate - a role he took on to set an example of community service to his young daughters - and has previously worked in engineering and accounting. He grew up in China but became a British citizen after studying for a masters degree in London. Xingang is involved with the Conservative Friends of the Chinese and is a past parliamentary candidate for the Conservative Party.
Xingang's priorities are to resist the overdevelopment of Molesey, protecting and enhancing our riverside, and supporting the high streets in Walton Road and Bridge Road. He supports keeping Vine Hall open and opposes the Jolly Boatman development.
Xingang has been a Claygate Parish Councillor since 2015. He serves as Vice Chair of the Council as well as Vice Chair of Highway and Transportation and of Planning. He has fought for residents on many local issues, such as campaigning against repeated water leaks and co-ordinating a community speed watch scheme to promote safe driving, and preparation of the council's budget with zero tax increase.
