Please vote Green on Thursday 4 May

This Thursday, you have a chance to vote for a councillor to represent you on Surrey County Council for the next four years.

Our Redhill candidates have been campaigning hard – to hold our seat in Redhill East, and to win in Redhill West and Meadvale, where we came second last time. Please vote for them!

Rob Jarrett – Redhill West and Meadvale

Rob Jarrett is a science teacher and a former Green Councillor on Brighton and Hove City Council. Two years ago, he moved back to Reigate, where he was born and grew up.

As a Councillor in Brighton, Rob was the lead member for Adult Care and Health. He introduced the living wage for care staff, worked closely with the Carers’ Centre to improve support for family carers of all ages, was the first chair of the new Health and Wellbeing Board, and worked closely with all health professionals to improve healthcare in the city.

Rob says, “We need an economy that works for everyone at the local level – providing decent jobs for Surrey residents, and transport that’s accessible for all.

“If elected, I will work all year round for a better Redhill and more sustainable Surrey, and I will provide strong, principled opposition on the Conservative-dominated County Council.

“Most importantly, I will be an active Councillor working on the issues that are important to you.”

Jonathan Essex – Redhill East (including North Earlswood) 


Jonathan EssexJonathan Essex has served as County Councillor for the past four years.

He has influenced Council policy on climate change and job creation, quarrying and protecting the countryside, and safe routes to schools. He’s helped dozens of residents with issues from school places to benefits. And he has exposed Council secrecy, unequal spending on roads across Surrey, and plans which could make local recycling worse.

Jonathan says, “I have served as your County Councillor for the last four years. During this time I have worked hard to get things done in Redhill. I hope you will re-elect me so I can carry on representing you, standing up for vulnerable residents and working to make Surrey a better and greener place to live.
