Chris is proud of being Exeter City Council’s first ever Green Councillor, and prospective Councillor for Alphington in the May 2018 city council election.
He not only works hard for the residents and businesses of Alphington, he also speaks for Exeter Green Party on a whole range of city-wide issues, such as protection of services, air pollution, planning, recycling and transport.
Chris is passionate about the importance of public services, and of a democratic, accountable and transparent local council. He opposes the privatisation of council services and is a strong campaigner for services to be run for people, not profit. Chris has taken a lead on many city issues and has built cross party support on key issues like Exeter's air pollution. Equally, he is not afraid to hold the council to account when necessary.
Chris works for an education trade union and lives in his ward of Alphington. He is a keen blogger and his independent stance on important local issues has won him a regular column on Devonlive.com and in the Express and Echo newspaper.
