As well as being well-liked and respected by local members and residents she is incredibly hardworking and deeply committed to Guildford, Cranleigh and the Villages. She has real vision for the future of Guildford and determined that our community deserves better than the current Conservative leadership we have at every level locally."
Speaking after the selection Zöe Franklin summarised her vision for the future of Guildford, Cranleigh and the Villages saying, "I am committed to seeing real change in five key areas locally and nationally.
  • I want the people of the UK to have the final say on Brexit through a People's Vote
  • I'm am determined that we build a future where everyone can fulfil their potential regardless of background
  • I want a future where our NHS and social care services get the funding they need to meet the needs of local people
  • I want a future where we build the right homes in the right places with the right infrastructure while also addressing the social housing crisis
  • Finally I want a future that is environmentally friendly with greener energy and transport methods, a significant reduction in plastic waste and urgent action to reduce air pollution locally.
"We have been let down again and again by our Conservative MP and Conservative-run councils and we deserve better. I believe that the Liberal Democrats and I, working together with the people of Guildford, Cranleigh and the Villages, can build a better, brighter and fairer future for everyone in our communities."
