Cllr Tom Spenser
Councillor for St John's, Councillors
Tom Spenser is the Lib Dem candidate for St John's in the Borough Council elections on 5 May. He is hoping to replace Councillor Ken Howard, who is retiring after many years of service.
Tom has lived locally all his life and attended the Winston Churchill School. He has enjoyed being a part of the St John's community for some time and feels that one of the greatest strengths of the area is its close, supportive community.
If elected, Tom will strive to support local businesses and will press for more affordable housing and improved facilities for young people. Tom is also concerned to preserve the natural beauty of the area. He wants to implement more accessible facilities for waste disposal, to keep areas such as the Lye and adjacent woods and the canal towpath free from litter.
Tom's goal is to do all he can for residents to ensure that needs are met and issues are tackled in a timely way. He looks forward to joining local Lib Dem councillors Rob Leach and Dale Roberts on the Council and working with them to keep St John's a strong and happy community.
Across Woking, all our candidates share Our Vision for Woking, which builds on Liberal Democrat successes as a group at Council. Liberal Democrats commit to Financial Responsibility and Openness, to provide affordable homes, develop a local vision for our area, build a vibrant local economy giving residents a green and safe borough where there is leisure and well being for all.
