Chris Bowers is our parliamentary candidate for the forthcoming general election. A Lewes district councillor from 2007 to 2015, he has immense experience at both the local and national level. He has lived midway between Uckfield and Lewes for more than 20 years, so knows and loves Wealden as a local.

A writer and broadcaster by profession, Chris is well known to tennis fans as a commentator, and earlier this year was heard on national television commentating live on the historic, first-ever 12-12 tiebreak at Wimbledon. He is also the biographer of tennis legends Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, and in 2011 wrote Nick Clegg's biography. Chris Bowers, Oct 2019 - photo by Kate Wright

Chris' areas of specialist knowledge are the Environment and Education, and he has a daughter currently studying for her A' Levels at sixth-form college. He has a very strong environmental track record and was the founder of the Environmental Transport Association in 1990. He has also worked for the European Federation for Transport and Environment since 1991, and earlier this year he led the transport chapter in the Lib Dems' new beefed-up strategy to tackle climate change, which sees the party commit to make the UK net-neutral in greenhouse gases by 2045.

More information on Chris is available on his personal website.
