I’m Chris Matheson, the Member of Parliament for the City of Chester.
I was first elected to represent Chester in May 2015 and remain very honoured to represent this city in Westminster.
I live in Hoole with my family. I am married to Katherine and I have two daughters, both at schools in Chester.
I have a degree from the London School of Economics and previously I worked as a manager in the electricity industry. In my former role for the Unite trade union, I worked with some of the best known employers in Cheshire to secure jobs and win investment for the Chester area.
I am committed to protecting our environment and I am opposed to fracking. I put Chester first in everything I do, including promoting Chester’s businesses at every opportunity and looking for ways to attract investment and secure jobs in our city.
I have worked hard to re-open Chester’s castle to the public, to support WASPI women in their fight for pension inequality justice, I have campaigned against school cuts, fought for better broadband services for residents across the constituency and I continue to be the most accessible MP this city has ever had.
Chester is a great place to live and I will continue to work hard for our city.
