Angela Richardson selected as Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Guildford, Cranleigh and our villages.


Last night (Thursday 7th November) Angela Richardson, Ewhurst resident, was selected by the Guildford Conservative membership to be the next Member of Parliament for Guildford. We would like to thank all of you who attended the meeting at such short notice.

A packed room heard from three candidates, who answered some challenging questions, before overwhelmingly voting for Angela.

Angela Richardson, originally from New Zealand, has lived in Ewhurst for over 10 years and prior to that has lived in and around the Guildford area for 7 years.

Angela has real world experience and a background in Investment Banking Operations, she has also worked in the City of London for Schroders and Axa Investment Managers. Angela is married to Jeremy and they have three teenage children, all born at the Royal Surrey. Two and a half years ago Angela joined Cranleigh Parish Council and was returned in the May elections and serves as Vice Chairman and Chair of Finance. She has also been a School Governor and Chairman of a PTA. Since 2012, Angela has been an active member of the Ewhurst Players and has worked in award-winning productions as well as singing to raise funds for local and national charities.

Angela said:

"I would like to thank everyone for their support last night and I am delighted with the offers of support from members for the campaign so far.

This will be a tough election so all help is needed from canvassing and delivering to donations.

We have built a strong team and are on a good footing to win with our local and national support.

I look forward to seeing you out on the campaign trail - I will be out every day to make sure we keep Guildford, Cranleigh and our Villages Conservative."
