Chris grew up in rural Cheshire and now lives in Hoole with his family. He is married to Katherine and they have two daughters, both at schools in the city.


Chris has a degree from the London School of Economics and has previously worked as a manager in the electricity industry. He now works for the Unite trade union and he has worked with some of the best known employers in Cheshire to secure jobs and win investment to the Chester area.


"Chester used to be a prosperous city. Now too many of us are not even comfortable. Families are feeling insecure, they worry about the future, about paying the rent or the mortgage; about whether they can afford to fill the car up, or go on a family holiday. 


While big businesses are writing their own tax bills or even paying no tax at all, Chester's small businesses are struggling to access finance from banks and working hard just to keep afloat in an economy flattened by George Osborne and his double dip recession.


I will promote Chester's businesses, work with our business community to attract investment and real, skilled and secure jobs to our city, and ensure a Labour Government and a Labour Cheshire West and Chester Council provide quality public services for those who need them. 


Chester is a great place to live. We have massive potential but we have been failed by the Con-Dem government. Labour will work to bring prosperity and security, opportunity and optimism back to Chester, and as your Labour MP, I will lead that regeneration for our great city."
