Yan Malinowski - Chair of South East Young Liberals
Yan Malinowski is an experienced and active campaigner within the Liberal Democrats, based near Aylesford in Kent. He joined the party back in 2014, helping to set up the University of East Anglia Lib Dem Society as chair at a time when Norwich had a Lib Dem MP but no student branch. Yan led the society on to campaign heavily in the difficult 2015 General Election the following year.
Yan has since worked as a Campaign Assistant and Organiser across the East of England and South East Region. Helping South Cambridgeshire Lib Dems take 30 out of 45 seat on the Distict Council in 2018 and doubling the size of Broadland District Council's Lib Dem group in early 2019. In 2019, he also served on the South East Lib Dems Regional Executive as an ordinary member while working for a relocation company in London, before returning to work for the party in the East of England at the General Election in December.
He is now working for the party again, this time as a organiser for the Norfolk Lib Dems as they prepare to increase their representation on Norfolk County Council in 2020, though due to COVID19 the majority of his support comes in the form of remote working from home in Kent.
When he is not campaigning, Yan spends most of his time enjoying the Kent countryside or gaming online. He is also a massive Star Wars fan.
