Norwich Conservatives are pleased to announce the selection of Lisa Townsend as the candidate for Norwich South for the 2015 General Election.
Barry Cochrane, Chairman of Norwich Conservatives: “We are delighted to have selected Lisa as our candidate in Norwich South. Lisa is a extremely hard working candidate with the right skills, who I know will focus on the needs of people in Norwich South and will make a great MP"
"I am deeply honoured to have been chosen to fight Norwich South for the Conservatives at the next general election.
Both my husband and I have family connections to Norwich, and the City has always been a part of our lives. That's why I'm determined to work with Chloe Smith, the excellent MP for Norwich North, to show that only the Conservatives have the answers to the real issues facing people in Norwich, and ensuring that we continue to deliver jobs and growth throughout the City.
The General Election is now only 250 days away, so that's not a lot of time to show Ed Miliband that he can't take the people of Norwich South for granted.”
In response to the selection, Norwich North MP Chloe Smith said:
"Lisa is an excellent community campaigner and will stand up, alongside me, for people in Norwich. She would make an outstanding, hardworking MP for Norwich South."
