The Conservative Party Candidate
About Tony Roberts
Tony has lived in Nottinghamshire for over forty years moving here in the late 1960’s to train as a teacher at what is now Nottingham Trent University. He taught Speech and Drama in our county’s schools for over thirty years before retiring a few years ago. Tony is currently a Trustee Director of a Primary Academy.
Why choose Tony Roberts?
Tony has over 30 years experience in local government, the last nine as Leader of a District that anticipated the cuts in government funding and acted swiftly. The Council that Tony led maintained a tight control on its budget and froze its Council Tax for four years whilst continuing to provide effective services that people both wanted and needed. Tony has also worked as a volunteer counsellor for the Probation Service, been a trustee of a charity helping with emergency aid and currently is the Councillor responsible for “Community Safety” on Newark and Sherwood District Council.
Why it matters who is elected
Tony Roberts believes that Nottinghamshire needs a Police and Crime Commissioner with affordable, realistic and sensible policies. Tony has a deliverable plan that will bring down crime, support victims and see the police given one simple target – to cut crime.
Tony Robert’s main aims for a safer Nottinghamshire
1. To cut crime and crack down on anti-social behaviour.
2. To implement a zero tolerance approach to knife, drug and alcohol related crime.
3. To give appropriate support to the victims of crime.
4. To encourage efficiencies to put more money into front line activities.
5. To work in partnership with others to tackle the underlying causes of crime.
