We are very pleased to announce that JOHN BUSBY will be standing as an Ashtead Independent for election to Mole Valley District Council on 5 May as one of the representatives for Ashtead Village Ward, joining Simon Ling.
John moved to Ashtead in 2006 and has a young family. He is an active committee member of the Ashtead Residents’ Association and is committed to maintaining Ashtead’s village character, and has been concerned recently in the creation of a web-based hub for local issues to be discussed to drive improvements of services and opportunities in Ashtead.
John and his canvassing team will be knocking on every door in Village Ward over the next few weeks until 5 May. Look out for his election leaflet and don’t hesitate to question John or any member of the team on any issue relevant to Mole Valley District Council which is important to you. If you would like to be sure of speaking to John personally please contact any one of us through this website.
John believes that more than ever Independent Councillors are needed to ensure that party politics do not triumph over local interests and common sense. National party politics have little relevance to local affairs which should be in the hands of local residents serving only local interests.
The other candidates are Bob Cane (UKIP), Chris Hunt (the Conservative Party Candidate) and Clive George Scott (the Labour Party Candidate).
