With the 2018 Local Elections now over, we have the great pleasure to announce that throughout the eight Hornchurch and Upminster wards, voters elected four Conservative Councillors to represent them.
The Elected Councillors are as follows:
St Andrews Ward
John Christopher Mylod Elected 1626 votes
Emerson Park Ward
Robert John Perry (Bob) Elected 1790 votes
Roger Edward Ramsey Elected 1857 votes
Matthew James Sutton Elected 1495 votes
For new Councillors, Bob Perry & Matt Sutton this was their first election for Emerson Park, but both have worked tirelessly for the community behind the scenes for ten and eight years respectively.
John Mylod, having become a Conservative Councillor during this election, has previously represented the St Andrews Ward since 1994 and has worked consistently for his constituents ever since.
Roger Ramsey from 2014-2018 led a very successful Havering Council, and has been part of many local projects including the new Sports Centre to be built where the existing Harrow Lodge Park Sports Centre is, and the state of the art Sapphire Ice and Leisure Centre in Romford. Having left his role as Leader of the Council, Roger has now taken the role of Cabinet member for Finance and Property.
In the weeks leading up to the election, all of our candidates gratefully received help and support from our hard working and dedicated team of volunteers. The candidates visited every road within Hornchurch and Upminster, and had the pleasure of speaking to thousands of local residents. Since the previous election in 2014, our candidates have undertaken many individual issues for residents, and with four being elected, they as well as our other candidates pledge to continue to do this. Our Councillors have explained the Conservative policies for the future, including the intention to step up capital spending on our roads and pavements.
Your Conservative Councillors will join the strengthened Conservative group in the Town Hall and will fight in the best interests of their wards: Emerson Park and St. Andrews, but most importantly of all, you!
