Here’s the man to oust from Surrey County Council – if you want change?

A week is a long time in politics, but a year is not a long time pre-election.

Here’s the man Paul Follows, Waverley’s Deputy leader has to beat to take the Surrey County Council seat for Godalming South, Milford and Witley in the May 2020 elections. The Liberal Democrat who put up an amazing fight against MP Jeremy Hunt in the General Election has announced he will stand for Cllr Peter Martin’s  county seat.

That is of course, unless Cllr Martin decides to anoint another? As he is after all, Deputy Leader of the Conservative Association. He has also held the seat for almost a two-decades.

Over the coming months we will be revealing what voters would like to know about Mr Martin. Even some of the things that Mr Martin would prefer you didn’t know?

E.g. Has anyone in Bramley ever wondered how that monstrosity of a building which now towers over a listed building in the heart of Bramley’s Conservation Area was ever allowed?

The massive new Science Block that now dominates the centre of Bramley, has a very good friend in… yes – you guessed Cllr Peter Martin, a Governor of St Catherines. Another of Peter Martin’s colleagues Richard Seaborne is also a Governor there. The overdevelopment of the school site has been a bone of contention with residents for many years. For the past 20 years, the school has grown like Topsy and now dominates the village.
