Meet Your Local Candidates

This week local residents will vote to decide who should represent them on Watford Council.

I’m delighted that hardworking Watford Liberal Democrats councillors are re-standing in some wards - Ann Saffery in Woodside, Karen Clarke-Taylor in Oxhey, Darren Walford in Tudor and Mark Watkin in Nascot.

In other wards we have candidates hoping to be elected for the first time, including:

🔶 Callowland: Richard Short who has lived in the ward since 1997 and is often seen walking his dog in Callowland Rec. A keen supporter of local charities, for many years he announced Watford FC’s arrival onto the pitch on match days.

🔶 Central: Sam Summer who works at our leisure centres, supports local charities and lives in the ward with his family and dog Simba.

🔶 Holywell: Simon Morrison who lives in the ward  with his family. He is a retired IT Manager who worked in Watford for TJX.

🔶 Leggatts: Sham Begum has lived in the ward for over 30 years and works in finance. She went to Cherry Tree school and her sons did too.

🔶 Meriden: Annalisa Buraglio Molteni who teaches at a local secondary school, runs the Meriden Foodbank and lives in the ward.

🔶 Park: Gabriel Duduta who lives in the ward and helps to organise our fantastic volunteers at Watford General hospital.

🔶 Stanborough: Clara Ansong who runs a small business and lives in the ward.

🔶 Vicarage: Sohail Bashir who has lived in West Watford for over 40 years, attending Chater School as a boy. He served as a councillor from 2014 - 2021 and works as a solicitor.

This energetic team of candidates has a fantastic range of experiences and skills. They are united in their care for Watford and the local community.
