Exclusive: Seema Kennedy Selected as Ashton-under-Lyne Conservative PPC

Another exclusive for Tameside Eye today and we can reveal to you the second prospective parliamentary candidate confirmed to stand for the Conservatives in Ashton-under-Lyne is Seema Kennedy. Seema will be up against the Labour MP, David Heyes.

Seema was chair of St. Alban's Conservatives up until earlier this year where she courageously led a campaign to deselect Anne Main MP for fiddling her expenses. Given Seema's past, it will be interesting to see how things heat up in the area since Lord Sheldon has been exposed of a similar fiddle akin to Anne Main.

Ashton-under-Lyne is a solid stronghold for Labour who have held the seat since 1935. In the last general elections they polled 13,952 more votes than the Conservatives, but this has been dramatically reduced since the Conservatives have recently gained 4 councillors in Failsworth and Ashton Hurst.
