Election statement:

I believe in local solutions for local problems and want our Police force to be engaged with and working for our residents.

It is in nobody’s interests for political parties to take over our Police, they must be kept free from political interference.

I am dedicated to making a difference to the lives of Cumbrian residents having been born and lived here all my life and have worked with young people and within my community for over 40 years.

I have many years of experience running a business and working at a strategic level in my current employment, as a Chair of Governors and Deputy Leader of Eden District Council.  I have a Masters Degree in Business Administration and the knowledge, skills, commitment and life experience to take on the role of Police Commissioner.

Currently serving my second term as Chairman of the Carlisle and Eden Community Safety Partnership I have experience and understanding of community safety across Cumbria. Using this experience along with effective consultation and communication I can make common sense decisions on what is likely to be the best outcomes for the different communities in Cumbria. I believe

  • There should be zero tolerance of crime and antisocial behaviour
  • The excellent work around domestic violence and the damage it does to families and children’s futures needs supported and built on
  • Policing rural and urban crime must be fairly delivered
  • Through working more closely with our communities they become the important partner they should be to reduce crime.

If I am elected Police Commissioner I would fight tooth and nail to make sure residents concerns are recognised and addressed.
