Chris Maines elected as London Chair

Chris MainesCongratulations to Chris Maines who was elected as Chair of London Region on Saturday!

He succeeds Mike Tuffrey, who had come to the end of his term of office and was not eligible for re-election.

Chris has been a councillor for a total of 28 years, and has served as Leader of Bromley Council and Leader of the Opposition in Lewisham.  He has run for Parliament, and has been closely involved with party conferences as Chief Steward and currently on the Federal Conference Committee.

There were three candidates for the post and Lib Dem Voice carried pitches from all of them: Chris MainesAnuja Prashar and Peter Ramrayka. It was heartening to see a well-fought contested election.
