THEODORA DICKINSON is set to run for South East Regional Chairman under the #TeamPaterson banner, TBG can reveal.
Upon the game changing announcement Dickinson said - "I believe Alexandra Paterson will make a truly fantastic CF National Chairman. Through her previous involvement with the Conservative Party she has priven herself to be an exceptionally hard working, committed and capable individual, and can be counted on 100% to deliver the strong leadership that Conservative Future Members deserve."
Speaking exclusively to TBG, Theodora outlined some of her plans - "We are lucky to have so many branches in the South East. I will work hard to support existing areas and branches, without interference or dictation.
"Other regions run successful conferences for CF members. I will introduce a yearly Conservative Future Conference in the South East, to include policy debates, political training, and plenty of socialising.
"We already campaign hard across the region, and the Road Trip 2015 initiative has proved that campaigning can be fun. To boost this, I will organise regional Super Saturday Campaign Days every month, and will seek funding to make sure that all activists have travel costs reimbursed, and are rewarded with food and drinks.
"Our emails to regional officers all too often don't get a prompt response, or sometimes even go unanswered. I will reply to all communications within 72 hours. We have lots of great events in the South East. I will make sure there is a weekly round-up email of all events to maximise attendance across the region.
"I will arrange a sponsored event at the Conservative Party Conference this September for the South East region."
TBG asked Eastern Region CF Chairman Cllr Stephen Canning, candidate for Deputy Chairman Political, for his thoughts: "Theodora is a absolutely lovely person with a fantastic personality, a hard work ethic and some great ideas. I wish her the very best of luck and am shaw she'd be great in the role!"
