Do you want to know more about who the candidates are in your area? Party literature comes through our letter boxes but we hear very little about the candidates themselves.

The Dragon asked candidates from each of the parties to tell us a little about why they are standing to be a member of Guildford Borough Council at the elections on May 4.

Click here to see a succinct summary from the candidates themselves in the ward where you will be voting. You can also find it just under the ‘Home’ button on the front page ‘Candidate Summaries – GBC Election 2023‘.

We asked them for 150 words to set out their motivation for standing and what they will try to do if they get elected.

We have created candidate profiles with their own words for all candidates in the 21 wards, listed alphabetically.

Most aspiring councillors have responded but not all.

If you are one of the Independents or others standing who have not been asked for your details, please contact us ( and we will try to get your 150 words into our candidate profiles.

We hope this helps voters to make up their minds on May 4.
