The people's choice for Police Commissioner
Kris Brown is standing to be the Liberal Democrat candidate for Merseyside's Police Commissioner.
Since May 2018, Kris has been a councillor in Woolton and Gateacre on Liverpool City Council and serves on the Liberal Democrat opposition group front bench.
Kris was born and brought up in London but moved to Merseyside over a decade ago. He works in the public sector and is a father to three young children.
The campaigning candidate
Kris has campaigned tirelessly for the Liberal Democrats in Merseyside over the last decade and has managed many campaigns across the city region, including success in the 2014 local elections in Southport (winning 5 out of 6 seats), Richard Kemp's 2016 Mayoral campaign (increasing the Lib Dem vote from 6% to 21%). He also served as Chris Carubia's agent in the last Police and Crime Commssioner elections and was agent to Carl Cashman's Metro Mayor campaign. During the 2016 European Referendum, Kris was the Liverpool Agent for Britain Stronger in Europe.
In Liverpool, Kris was instrumental in turning around the party's fortunes in local government and has ensured the party made gains in every single election cycle since becoming Chair of the city party.
The listening candidate
Kris is not afraid to engage with the public and listen to their concerns. As a councillor in Liverpool, Kris knocks on doors every week to engage with residents in his ward. Kris believes the role of the Police Commissioner is to be the people's voice to the police and will be a visible and engaging candidate.
