Cllr. Teresa O'Neill

Teresa has been a Bexley Councillor since May 1998 and has been the Leader of the council since May 2008. She was also formerly the Deputy Leader and a Cabinet Member for Children’s Services & Education. Before coming to Bexley Teresa also stood for Blackheath Ward in Lewisham in 1986 and 1990, as well as the Lewisham Deptford Parliamentary seat in 1992. She has previously worked as an advisor to former London Mayor Boris Johnson working on Outer Borough Relations. 

She feels it has been a great pleasure to represent residents in Bexley since 1998 and has found herself dealing with many issues for her residents, everything from missed bin collections to pothole repairs.

Since 2006 Bexley Conservatives have transformed services in a way that Teresa feels has been extremely beneficial to residents. This includes delivering cost effective, improved services that has meant not needing to cut services or greatly increase council tax as some other Councils have done.

Teresa is proud that we have raised the profile of Bexley resulting in attracting additional funding as well as delivering some significant projects for our residents such as the Cancer Centre at Queen Mary's, new schools and Olympic legacy projects but, more importantly, we have a longer term positive vision for the future of our borough.

Finally, she was delighted to be awarded the OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2015 in recognition of her efforts in the borough.
