Chris Carubia is an active member of the Wirral Liberal Democrats and was elected as a councillor in 2014 with a strong record of action on local issues. Chris was elected as our Merseyside’s Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for the 2016 Elections where he greatly increased the Lib Dems share of the vote.
He lives with his wife and daughter in the heart of the ward he represents and is currently chair and membership officer for Wirral South. Chris has spent over thirty five years working in the field of electrical engineering and I.T. technical management, working extensively throughout Europe, the Scandinavian countries and the Americas, before setting up and successfully running his own business in Wirral in 2003.
It was this change in his career that gave him the opportunity to spend more time with his family and within his community.
He is a Governor of the local primary school, is a Diabetics UK champion, an Age UK Champion, an Ambassador for Cancer UK and an accomplished author of historical fiction. He is also working on conservation projects within the North West with Chester Zoo.
Since being elected Chris has been campaigning against issues such as anti social behaviour, and domestic violence and has been working closely with his community police officers and has seen at firsthand how valuable the PCSO’s are. He is fighting hard to save them from being eradicated from our streets, due to the unprecedented central government budgetary cuts.
In 2015 he successfully campaigned for free access to the Mersey Tunnel for all blue light services saving the NHS alone £185,000 per year on ambulance travel costs.
