A message from The Chairman:

Although the Conservative party did not field a candidate, many of our members supported Zac Goldsmith in his campaign as an independent.  We are naturally disappointed that a candidate from a party that is opposed to Conservative values has been elected, but in the interest of all residents we will continue to support the Conservative-controlled Councils of Kingston and Richmond as they work with Sarah Olney for the remainder of this parliamentary term.

 

All of us in the Association owe a huge debt of gratitude to Zac Goldsmith. As well as being an outstanding local constituency MP, he has been fully supportive of the local Association. We wish him and his family the very best.
