Canterbury & Coastal Liberal Democrats have selected Russ Timpson to be our candidate in the Canterbury constituency at the forthcoming General Election.
Born and raised in Wickhambreaux, Russ has strong connections with Canterbury, having attended secondary school in the city.
On leaving school he joined the Royal Navy and served in submarines. He later joined the Fire Service and spent two years as a fire fighter based at the Canterbury Fire Station.
Having gained a degree as a mature student, Russ now works as a chartered Fire Engineer and has been interviewed on TV to give expert comments on events such as the Grenfell Tower fire.
Russ is married and lives in Ash. He previously stood for parliament in 2015 for South Thanet.
