I was first elected in 2012 for the old Brookwood ward. I was motivated by a desire to bring improvements to the lives of people I lived with and knew the only way to make a difference was to represent the Conservative Party. It was especially important to me that I stood in the seat where I lived. I spent a few years learning the ropes before joining the Executive in 2018 and I now hold two of the most important portfolios that significantly impact the residents of Woking. The Environmental portfolio covers not only climate change issues, but also health and wellbeing by striving to provide some of the best habitat, bio-diversity and green spaces possible. I launched Planet Woking in 2020 which is the Council’s vehicle for getting the residents involved in our climate change efforts.
I absolutely love the community of Horsell and have been involved with it for 50 years. My family was born and raised here and went to school in Horsell and I taught for 23 years, finishing as Deputy Head, at two schools in Horsell. Over the years I have met many of the pupils I once taught, who are now taking active parts themselves in the area as parents and volunteers.
I became a councillor in 2007 to continue this involvement with community and to help to make a difference. Many residents have lived in Horsell for years but I found too that language and cross cultural differences meant that some were isolated so I loved the Friendship Groups I helped with and which connected and included the lonely and marginalised.
Paul Smith is a 59 year a old father of three living with his wife, Gail, currenlty living in Knaphill, prior to that Goldsworth Park. His children went to Hermitage and Winston Churchill school. He has lived in the borough since 1984 and most notably a Surrey police officer for thirty of them, including that of borough Inspector. One of his significant achievements was to tackle town centre violence through a mixture of strict enforcement and partnership working. He has also worked for the NHS and currently employed with another Surrey local authority. This gives him an unique insight into both the borough's history and the workings of public services.
