Rob Leach: Your strong local voice for St John's
Rob Leach was elected in May 2019 as councillor for St John's in the 2019 Borough Council elections.
Rob served on Woking Borough Council from 2004 until 2011 in the ward which included the Kingsway and Goldsworth Road area. He worked to improve the canal footpath including the stretch from St John's village to the town centre. He was also appointed as a trustee of the Woking Association of Voluntary Service.
Now semi-retired, Rob is a freelance training consultant, having spent most of his career in the Home Office, including service as an Immigration Officer and in the Prison Department. He was later appointed Training Officer for the Medical Research Council and was also a tutor in what became the National School of Government. In his spare time, Rob is on the Management Committee of a Short Stay School, is a regular gym user and was for many years Assistant Director of Woking Youth Theatre. He loves languages and can get by in Italian, German and Dutch.
Rob wants to put forward three points for residents:
1. Go Green - Rob will pursue plans to secure e-bike charging points in Woking.
2. Go Clean - Rob wants more dog mess and litter bins along the Basinstoke Canal to help keep the busy pathways clear.
3. Intervene - Rob wants residents to make residents feel more involved in the developments in the Town Centre and will report their feelings back to Woking Council.
