Would you like to represent your area on Croydon Council?

As your local Member of Parliament, I am passionate about fighting for a better deal for Croydon.

But I can’t do it on my own. It’s really important to have good local councillors who can work with me to make sure that your area gets the investment and attention it deserves.

Next May, there are elections to decide who our councillors will be for the next four years. We're looking for candidates to replace some long-standing Conservative councillors who are retiring and to try to unseat Labour councillors who are not on the side of hard-working families.

Are you passionate about the place where you live and do you believe in Conservative values like choice, personal responsibility and reward for hard work? If so, might you be interested in standing to be a councillor?

If you think you might, email me at gavin.barwell.mp@parliament.uk and we can meet up to discuss how you go about getting selected and then elected, the time commitment involved (it’s perfectly possible to combine being a councillor with a full-time job) and the financial and practical support provided.

I look forward to hearing from you.
