Christopher Townsend

South West Hertfordshire

Christopher lives in Tring with his wife and three children. He is active in his local community, supporting the playout scheme on his local road, representing residents on planning matters and serving as a trustee for a local charity. He was a Borough Councillor for 8 years and currently serves on the Town Council. Professionally he has worked as a Senior Risk Manager in the City and recently as a Director in the Finance department of a large bank, working in Capital Markets. He has a PhD in mathematics. Outside of work he mostly enjoys time with the family and playing the piano when he can. His Christian faith is important to him.

Christopher says: ‘I have always believed that political change is what people should choose to really focus on. Whilst the political process is far from perfect it is the only way that we can get true change for our communities. Do you want this country to be a better place? Well, you have to vote for it – and for me that means voting for a liberal and tolerant society.’
