Jonathan Smith

Candidate for Tatton

General Election - 4 July 2024

Jonathan Smith

Jonathan Smith is a former Director of Social Services and Strategic Director in local government, and Chief Executive in the NHS. He became a service improvement consultant in Children’s Services, and completed his career in public service by taking on the role as Chair of safeguarding conferences and other key meetings for vulnerable children and young people. He worked for many years in Cheshire and Merseyside, as well as elsewhere in the country.

He has been a Member of the Liberal Democrats, or the Party’s predecessors, since 1983, but his senior public service career prevented him taking up an active, political role. He was a Liberal Democrat candidate in Oldham East and Saddleworth in 2017, and Tatton in 2019, where he increased the Liberal Democrat vote by 74%, and the vote share by more than double. Jonathan has continued to be active, across the Tatton Constituency, over the past four-and-a-half years: leading and supporting many different campaigns, being a frequent contributor to the Letters Page of the Knutsford Guardian, and, with his team, delivering leaflets and Residents’ Letters.

Jonathan has lived, with his wife Alison, in Bowdon for thirty-one years. They have four children, and five grand-children. Jonathan’s main interests, beyond his family and politics, centre around sport, music and travel. Jonathan sings in a local, Knutsford choir, and he and his family have often shopped, walked, and socialised in the Cheshire area.
