Stephen Richardson


Stephen lives in Illogan, where he owns and runs a fish and chip shop. He is married to Mandy and has three children; Rebecca, Sam and Jack.

Stephen has a degree in law and has worked as a legal consultant and licensed conveyancer. He also had a twenty year career with a prominent restaurant chain, before starting his own business.

Stephen joined Mebyon Kernow in 2010 and he was soon after elected to Illogan Parish Council in a by-election, polling over 70% of the vote. He was re-elected in 2013, coming second out of ten candidates. He also stood in the Cornwall Council elections and achieved second place in a five-way contest.

He serves on MK’s National Executive. He is one of the Party’s main spokespeople and is presently working with a team that is preparing a consultation document on MK’s proposal for a Law-Making Assembly for Cornwall.

Stephen is also a trustee of the St Piran Trust, which is developing plans to excavate the historic chapel from the sand dunes near Perranporth.

Speaking after his selection, Stephen said:

“I am absolutely delighted to have been adopted by the Truro and Falmouth Constituency Party as the Mebyon Kernow prospective parliamentary candidate for that constituency.

“I am looking forward to meeting the challenges of a long campaign with the support of our local councillors and the large number of community-minded people in Mebyon Kernow.

“Our campaign has already hit the ground running. On Saturday (25th January), the team were out meeting the public on Lemon Quay in Truro. We were listening to the concerns of people from all across Cornwall and answering questions about our vision for a law-making Cornish Assembly.

“Our campaign will involve a lot of listening, rather than the usual lecturing that we get from the Westminster parties. We are setting out to show that Cornwall is more than capable of making the difference to the lives and livelihoods of one and all by standing on our own two feet. I am looking forward to meeting as many people as I can over the next eighteen months.”
