Matthew Smith – Guildford South West
I moved to Guildford five years ago, after a spell working in Cologne, and have lived in Guildford South West ward since.
Having qualified and worked as a broadcast journalist and state secondary school teacher, I currently work in software development, where I am both a manager and employee representative. During my studies, I worked for an NHS Community Mental Health team.
As well as being a member of Historical Association, I enjoy going to see live music at the Boileroom, playing football at Christ’s College, Guildford, and the Surrey Sports Park, and visiting Riverside Park Nature Reserve.
We deserve better from the high council tax we all pay here in Guildford South West and I would be your voice in tough times, protecting our local services, and improving our schools, roads, buses and social care.
Our Labour councillors on Guildford Borough Council have shown that voting Labour makes a difference. Let me know what matters to you here in Guildford.
