Chris first with nomination

Chris Foote-Wood, Liberal Democrat candidate for Middlesbrough, has stolen a march on his rivals to be the first candidate to hand in his nomination papers today (Wed 14th April).

“We are first in the field and we hope to be the first in the ballot on May 6,” said Chris, “LibDems were second here last time and we have very chance of beating Labour’s Stuart Bell. If elected as MP for Middlesbrough, I will open an office in the town, I will live in the town and hold regular surgeries. I will be the full-time MP for Middlesbrough and will not take on any other jobs”.

Chris Foote-Wood, a journalist and broadcaster most of his working life, is now an author and publisher. He has stood for Middlesbrough before, he used to work in the town and was a sports correspondent with the local Evening Gazette for over twenty years.
