I have a strong track record of working with communities, writes Christopher Wellbelove. 

I have been an elected councillor since 2006, and a former mayor, with a special interest in using technology to improve public services and involve residents in decisions that affect them.

I have served as a governor of a successful primary school, and vice-chair of governors for a major higher education college.

I was a director of a charity that donates over £1million a year to help people out of poverty and into work.

I have also been employed for over 17 years in a leading global telecommunications company, where my role is to help organisations use social media to engage with their customers and local communities.

I am an effective campaigner, leading fights to save a local swimming pool, put more police on the beat, and have recently led a successful Labour campaign to save a fire station that was under threat of closure from government funding cuts.  

I believe that Arundel and South Downs needs a strong voice standing up for the local people and have been leading Labour’s campaign against Tory cuts to local police and other essential services across the constituency.
