Karen Constantine is your district councillor for Newington and county councillor for Ramsgate
I’m passionate about fairness but I believe Ramsgate is being left behind. With some vision and hard work it could be, and should be, a vibrant community full of opportunities for all who live, work and visit here.
Last May local voters elected me to Kent County Council to be a vocal champion for our area. I have taken on the role knowing I will be a strong voice for our corner of Kent and promising to fight for a fairer future for Thanet.
Seeking selection as Labour PPC for South Thanet
Our constituency party has started the process to select a candidate who will stand in the next General Election. I have put my name forward with the backing of many local members and support from further afield. Ultimately, this is an internal Labour Party process, but one which many outside our party are interested in. Over the coming weeks I intend to talk to many people about my reasons for standing and my vision of what can be achieved for the locality and for our party at Westminster.
For now, I have some information about my background and an introductory video on my Karen for PPC page.
