Chris moved to Manchester in 2011 and made her home in Manchester City Centre. Working in Manchester's tech sector for over a decade, Chris was elected to Manchester City Council as the city's first openly trans councillor in May 2023, and is the deputy leader of the Manchester Liberal Democrats.

In addition to her council role and local campaigning activity, she also works for a national charity as a software engineer, building websites that provide support to those in need.

Support Chris's campaign

Back Chris's campaign in Manchester Central for a liberal alternative through donating below, pledging your vote, or volunteering with our campaign.

Manchester Central is a safe seat for Labour, but a strong liberal challenger will mean Labour can't take Manchester for granted.

The Tories can't win in Manchester Central - the last time they did was before the second World War. The Liberal Democrats are the alternative here. In local elections, only the Liberal Democrats have beaten Labour.

Chris is campaigning for a fair deal for Manchester. A fair deal where all votes matter through proportional representation. A fair deal to eliminate poverty through a guaranteed basic income. A fair deal for housing through building more social housing, and guaranteeing people's right to live in safe, affordable homes.
