Stephen Rutherford is proud to be standing for N E Beds, the constituency where he has lived for the last eighteen years.
Working as an Aerospace Engineer at Cranfield, Stephen has spent his career working in advanced engineering roles on planes, cars, buses and satellites. This gives him first-hand experience of exporting both inside and outside of the EU, and the economic risks of losing free and easy access to the Single Market.
Stephen lives in Shortstown, next to the Cardington Sheds. One of the things he first noticed about the village was its strong community spirit, which inspired him to get involved. He runs the local Youth Club and is involved in litter picks, Fun Days and the Village Hall.
Stephen has been a committed member of the Liberal Democrats since they were formed.
He stood for the Liberal Democrats in N E Beds in 2005, securing over 10,000 votes.
