    I am your Liberal Democrat Candidate for the General Election.

    This blog gives you my views on current political issues.

    It also covers some Lib Dem
    policies that I think are particularly important.

About Steve

image5Steve Gee is 56 and has lived with his wife and children in the Nork Ward of the Epsom & Ewell constituency for 27 years. He is passionate about his family, his business interests and his sport and still actively plays football and cricket, skis, runs and keeps fit.

Steve was born in Liverpool and is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor by profession. He has recently retired as managing partner of a large multi-national construction consultancy based in Ealing, which he helped form some 31 years ago. He is now pursuing various non- executive positions and is Managing Director of a start up ski chalet company.

His political interests include economics, business, housing and foreign affairs. He marched through the streets of London in protest against the Iraq War and more recently against Hard Brexit. He believes that politics lacks enough people with real long-term experience of work and running a business to make sensible decisions on key matters that affect working families, employment and the economy.

Steve stood for Parliament in Wimbledon in the 2005 General Election and increased the Liberal Democrat share of the vote by 40%. He stood in Epsom and Ewell in 2015 and fought hard to stem the national swing away from the Liberal Democrats. He has also stood for seats on Surrey County Council and Reigate & Banstead Borough Council.

He has supported campaigns across the Epsom & Ewell constituency, including Save Epsom Hospital, believes that the Oyster zones should be extended to Epsom Station (a promise Chris Grayling has failed to deliver on), and that the town centre needs active support and regeneration, not messing about with the road system.

Steve’s successful business employed 150 people. Under his leadership and direction it won awards for employment practices and innovative management, based on freedom, trust and empowering staff to deliver results. These techniques he believes can and should be translated into political decisions to achieve a fairer and more open society that provides opportunities for all.

He has run campaigns within his industry on graduate unemployment and actively worked with Construction Youth Trust to engage with those from deprived backgrounds to bring them in to the Industry and provide employment opportunities.

Since the referendum he has been campaigning tirelessly against a Hard Brexit, protecting the rights of EU citizens in the UK (and those UK citizens living in the EU). He believes that the British people should be given a say on the final deal and that we must retain access to the Single Market to protect the economy and jobs and maintain access to skills and labour.

Like all Liberal Democrats he is fighting and campaigning for a country that is open, tolerant and united.
