Raised in Encinitas, Chris Kydd is a passionate local focused on building connections in the community. Through his work as Associate Publisher for the Coast News, Chris is able to give a voice to the voiceless, promote non-profits and their work, as well as bring together local business and residents through advertising campaigns. During his 20 years with the Coast News he's been an advocate for truth and a defender of traditional values such as the respect, honesty, and fairness.

He also enjoys playing pool with his father Jim Kydd on Sundays, and gardening at his home in San Marcos.
