Chris Edes is a long time activist for individual liberty and popular government. Since 2005, he has worked to build a viable alternative for people who believe the two party system has failed to provide adequate choices for representation in public office.
Chris founded the Greater Rochester Libertarian Party in 2007 and served as its Chair for five years, building the party into a respected alternative in Rochester politics. Chris also served as State Chair of the Libertarian Party of New York in 2009. He currently sits on the Board of Directors of the Genesee Valley Civil Liberties Union, and serves as Chair for the Monroe County chapter of the Shooters Committee on Political Education.
Chris was born in Rochester, NY and has lived there most of his life. He enjoys living in New York, where a person can experience all four seasons: a warm summer day, a colorful autumn, a white Christmas, and spring’s inspiring renewal. He would like to ensure that his state is a place where people can live free and prosper. Chris has worked in the past for the Free & Equal Elections Foundation and is currently self-employed as a web developer and information technology consultant.
