Kingston Conservatives have selected Jenny Lewington, a long-term resident of the Borough, to contest the Grove by-election on 16th July.
Jenny is a local grandmother who over the past 32 years has also worked in local schools. The Grove by-election follows the untimely death of Cllr. Chrissie Hitchcock, whose contribution to the Royal Borough was marked by all parties.
Jenny sees herself as a guardian for Grove Ward:
- Fighting anti-social behaviour and crime by campaigning against inappropriate nightlife licences and promoting neighbourhood watch schemes.
- Seeking more police for the town centre to cut crime and protect local residents.
- Adopting a zero tolerance approach to over-development in the town centre to promote Kingston's unique heritage and local history.
- Cleaning up Grove by securing investment to ensure our local area always looks its best, with community wardens to cut down on littering and a dedicated park ranger team to look after The Fairfield.
