I gather the ballot papers for the elections to the Conservative Future Executive have been landing on doormats today. More info on the candidates HERE. When I was at the CF Conference in Lougborough at the beginning of the month I met Karen Allen, who's standing for the Executive and was hugely impressed with what she had to say. I hope she'll be elected, and even more importantly go for a seat at the next election.
Mark Clarke is standing for chairman of CF, alongside Andrew Young (creator of ConservativeFutureTV) and Caroline Hunt. My vote would go to Mark, although at the age of 44, you won't be surprised to hear I don't have one! I don't know him well but from what I have seen he has the ability to take CF onto the next stage in building it up as a formidable youth organisation. It's already bigger than the Labour & LibDem youth sections added together so whoever is elected they have a good base on which to build.
