Biography - Bernie Spoor

April 9, 2021 7:11 AM

Cllr Bernie Spoor, Liberal Democrats, Spelthorne Borough Council

Bernie Spoor has lived in Sunbury for more than 40 years and has been a Councillor in Sunbury Common for the last nine years.

Initially a signalling engineer with London Transport's underground system, he progressed to computer engineering with Honeywell. There he rapidly progressed to a European support engineer travelling the UK and Europe resolving computing problems.

He moved on to setting up and running a network outsourcing company supporting the networks in various financial trading companies British and Asian.

He has two daughters who were educated in Sunbury and went on to work in and around Surrey.

Bernie is especially concerned about the on-going over-development of Sunbury and Spelthorne with apparently no concern for the residents' wellbeing or the infrastructure that makes their lives liveable. He feels that in many ways this over-development is one of the big divisions between the parties.

Having lived most of his life in Sunbury he has serious concerns for the local community and its environment. As a member of Neighbourhood Watch he is also concerned about crime and disorder issues and is pleased that more is being done for young people.

Bernie is also Spelthorne's representative on the Surrey Police and Crime Commissioner Panel. The Panel meets regularly and holds the elected Police and Crime Commissioner to account.
