Janice has been a member of the Green Party since 2014. What drove her into politics in her twenties was volunteering in community projects around Sutton, and campaigning against apartheid and racism. Her passion is to see people’s movements convince powerful forces that they cannot get away with exploiting us and our finite resources. That’s why she serve on the steering group of Divest Surrey to end Surrey County Council investment in gas and oil completely. Working with others to set up Sustainable Epsom is very rewarding and I’m passionate about animal rights and absolutely opposed to factory farming. CLICK HERE to read more

Ed was the Labour candidate in Epsom and Ewell in 2017 and came second behind Chris Grayling. He works for South Western Railway as a train driver. He will fight for more investment in public transport and for a train service you can rely on. Train travel is currently overpriced and too unreliable after 25 years of privatisation. He sees first-hand the damage Tory cuts have done to local services particularly for young people and he will fight to bring back youth services and defend Sure Start Labour’s policy of a second referendum will give you the chance to vote again. Only a Labour vote can beat the Tories and stop Brexit. If elected he will campaign to remain
National party politics is a depressing spectacle at the moment and, frankly, we all deserve better. For that reason Clive has decided to stand as an Independent candidate. He has worked as a local councillor for more than 12 years, including five years spent in the Council leader role, and he is currently Deputy Chairman for the Local Government Association. He therefore believe he is a credible Independent alternative to the candidates being offered by the major political parties. You will be able to rely on him to always vote in the interests of local residents, putting the needs of Epsom & Ewell, not any political party, first. CLICK HERE to read more
