Kris Brown is the Liberal Democrats candidate for Liverpool Walton and currently the Chair of the Liverpool Liberal Democrats.
He moved to Merseyside almost 7 years ago to look after family in Southport and has lived and worked in Liverpool since. He was born and raised in Edmonton, North London where he has previously served as an elected Councillor.
In 2015, after years working in political and public relation jobs, Kris decided to pursue a change in career path and is retraining and working in mental health care. Kris has spent years working and volunteering with the homelessness campaign charity Crisis and has seen first hand the tragic consequences that poor mental health can bring. If elected to Parliament, Kris wants to be a strong advocate for better mental health services, will continue to campaign to remove the stigma of mental illness, and will fight for mental illness to be given the same parity as physical illness.
Walton has two of the world's best football clubs – Liverpool and Everton – alongside great heritage and beautiful green spaces that need to be protected. However, underneath its great assets lies poverty and unemployment which will be worsened by government cuts and the Conservative hard Brexit plans. Kris believes Walton has been let down consistently by Labour politicians who believe they can get a job for life without putting in the work. If elected, Kris will work 7 days a week, all year round to make sure Walton doesn't get left behind by the government and will be accessible to everyone so that everyone gets good representation.
Outside politics, Kris is interested in motor sport, cinema and art. He enjoys spending as much free time with his partner Anna and their 4 year old daughter Aletheia and 1 year old son Xander.
