Anna has lived in the Meadvale and St. Johns area all her life and said, "This is an area I love and so I am very excited at the opportunity to contest the seat". She is following in the family tradition as her father, Peter Samuel, stood as the Lib Dem candidate in 1997.

From May 2008 to 2012 Anna was a Borough Councillor for Reigate and Banstead Borough Council. Anna said, "This was a great four years when I learnt so much about how our area is run, both what works and what doesn't and the challenges faced. During this time, amongst many other things, I helped to obtain funding for play equipment for children with disabilities, campaigned for a school crossing and worked with a number of local charities and voluntary organisations. Several of these I am still involved with today".

As a child Anna attended Dovers Green School, Reigate Priory and Reigate College. She then graduated from Reading University with a Social Work degree and worked for a number of years as a Probation Officer with the Youth Offending Team. More recently Anna trained as a teacher in further education.

Alongside this, for the past nine years Anna has worked for the South East Region Liberal Democrats. Anna said "I am a Liberal Democrat at heart and for me this is the Party that offers the best philosophy and policies for equality, diversity and community".

Anna's particular interests include improved provision for young people, including those with disabilities, in the fields of education and employment, and the need for more apprenticeship schemes and leisure facilities. Anna also believes passionately in the fundamental importance of the NHS together with better Mental Health Care.

Anna says, "The environment is extremely important to me, as is housing, where I want to address the very difficult housing issues faced by so many nationwide.
