Karen Allen

I fought South Shields at the May 2010 General Election for the Conservatives, gaining a 6.4% swing which was a 4% vote increase. The Conservatives polled 7,886 up from 5,207 in 2005. I was born in the North East and grew up in South Shields. I currently live in London and am employed as a Director at Lloyd's Broker Howden International.

A spot of canvassing

I'm looking forward to the Hustings tomorrow in Manchester. I was talking to several people at the Pitcher and Piano on Tuesday night and was really pleased to see how many people were planning to travel up to Manchester.

The only thing I found slightly unnerving was that many people were saying they hadn't received their ballot papers yet. As votes have to be in by noon on September 15th it's definetely worth contacting the ever helpful Richard Jackson at CCHQ, if you still haevn't received your paper by next week: richard.jackson@conservatives.com

On Saturday afternoon I'm doing some campaigning in Moston Ward which is a target ward close to Manchester City Centre. If you are interested in joining us before the Hustings to help out please let me know.
