Karen Reid is a committed Christian activist who has run once for parliament: New South Wales Legislative Assembly, East Hills, 2003. Her motivation to run as a Christian Democrat Party candidate was a worsening moral decline and the lack of Christian values in the society. Karen Reid's main duties, as stated by her party, are those of a wife and mother. At the time of her campaign, she had four children ranging in age from 4 to 13. She was an enrolled nurse, and helped with a church-organised weekly play group.
