Our PPC - Matt Severn

Matt Severn Head Profile Square

I am 33, and married to Penny a social worker, and we have a wonderful young daughter, Molly (and an eccentric cat called Bilbo).

Raised in North Lancashire I have lived in Cumbria since 2009 and have been a District Councillor in Kendal since 2014. I have stood for Parliament twice before in Morecambe & Lunesdale.

I run an independent bookshop, and previous to that I was an insurance broker dealing with car crashes and flood claims including Storm Desmond.
