Born and raised in Redcar, Chris lives in the town on the seafront with his partner Yvonne. The couple have two grown-up daughters.
Chris has represented the West Dyke Ward in East Redcar on Redcar & Cleveland Council since 2015. He topped the poll there in the council elections last May.
Following his selection, Cllr Chris Jones said:
“It’s a great honour to have been chosen by the Lib Dems to contest the General Election, which could take place any time this year.
“I am keen to work with residents, community groups and other councillors to make our area a better place.
“The Conservatives could not have made a bigger mess of running the country if they had tried. But Labour is not offering any real alternative. People want change and the only way to get it is with the Liberal Democrats. Only we can deliver a fairer economy and a greener future.”
