Statement to voters
I am standing as the Labour and Co-operative Party candidate for Wiltshire and Swindon Police and Crime Commissioner.
I run an electrical contracting business and grew up in Wootton Bassett, moving to Swindon in 1997. I have been a Swindon Borough Councillor for 13 years and was Mayor of Swindon from 2018-19. I have also been a previous Parliamentary & European Parliamentary candidate in Wiltshire. Most importantly I have served on the Police and Crime panel for Wiltshire and Swindon since 2012 and was the Vice-Chair for 4 years and now the Chair despite being only one of three Labour members on the committee. In this role I have built a strong understanding of our Police force in Wiltshire.
One of the first problems I shall focus on is trying to get a fairer funding for the Wiltshire and Swindon Police area as this drives the ability of the police force to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour. Despite every MP for our PCC area being Conservative, a Conservative PCC being in place for 2 terms, both councils for Wiltshire and Swindon being Conservative controlled and Conservative controlled governments for over 10 years no progress has been achieved on this and I will seek to remedy this. Without the right level of funding from Government we will always be short of the resources we need to support our residents and businesses and have an effective police force for Wiltshire.
My key pledges are to:
Build a more visible policing presence through a stronger focus on community policing
Task a senior staff lead to support victims
Build more resources to tackle cybercrime
Protect children and the vulnerable
Better protect women and girls
Build a greener police force
