Vote Charles Bamford for Chessington South, Thursday 6th May 2021
I grew up in Chessington. I went to school here, played grass roots sport here, went to church here and got my first job here. I have lived and worked my whole life in our borough.
I began my career supporting pupils with special educational needs. For the last 10 years, I have worked for Oxygen, a local youth charity running projects across the borough. In Chessington this includes a successful anti-knife project in schools which has saved lives. I manage a community safety project in Kingston town centre and have I’m standing because I want to bring accountability to our council. Many feel the current council is too undemocratic and too resistant to scrutiny.
Adding another Liberal Democrat will do nothing to address this problem. It will just mean another vote for the status quo.
If I am elected I will stand up for residents, disrupt the tedious political tug of war between local Lib Dems and Conservatives and fight for a council that serves our community.
