Chris Davidson

Chris has lived here in Patching Hall ward for nearly 30 years, with Ann and their sons. Chris has been a governor at Chelmer Valley High School for nearly 15 years. Chris says, "Lib Dems like Tom Smith-Hughes and Stephen Robinson have long campaigned against the Conservatives' housing plans. We can do much better.

It is crazy to build so many new houses without also ensuring we have the roads, schools, doctors' and dentists' surgeries that will be needed."

Stephen Robinson

Stephen is a long-standing and well known local campaigner. He has been our councillor for four years and works in communications for charitable organisations. Stephen says, "Whether standing for election as MP or councillor, I want to be a strong voice for our area.

Many MPs across the parties are also local councillors. It helps you keep your feet on the ground. Locally, the Lib Dems voted against the council tax rise from the Conservatives. Nationally, Lib Dems have cut your income tax."
