Election statement:

Nick was born and raised in County Durham, with family and friends all over the
county, including Darlington. To really get a grip on the issues the Police & Crime
Commissioner will have to deal with, they need to understand the people they will be
representing – this is Nick’s strength. As a local man, he is well placed to understand
the views of local residents.

 Nick believes very firmly that the role of an elected representative is not only to lead,
but importantly, to listen as well. Nick, speaking from Durham City said, “Politicians
often think they’re obliged to have all the answers. I think residents find it refreshing
when someone running for office genuinely wants to hear their opinions before
deciding on what to do.” Nick has committed to listening to, and learning from the
people he’s asking to vote for him.

 Throughout Nick’s campaign to become Durham & Darlington’s first Police & Crime
Commissioner, he will visit the towns and villages of the area. He will be speaking
with local Police officers, local residents and local business owners to ask their views
on the problems, and potential solutions to crime and associated issues in their area.

 Nick has invited anyone who would like to speak with him, about anything at all, to
contact him directly using the Contact Nick section of his website.
