December’s Newsletter from Weston’s MP

Dear David ,

Weston has a huge stake in who becomes Avon & Somerset’s Police Crime Commissioner; the person chosen for the job will set police & crime objectives and decide upon the force area’s budget. Naturally, we locals want to make sure that the person chosen for the job knows about Weston, its issues relating to crime and drugs, and is willing to fight for the resources we need to deal with them. So far I’ve only met the (aptly named) Conservative candidate, Mark Weston (more details about what he’s trying to achieve below) but, whoever we choose, Weston needs someone who understands our town’s ongoing battle with drug addiction, the need to prevent rehabs from turning into crime hotspots, and is willing to fight for the resources we need. The Police Crime Commissioner Elections are on 5th May 2016, so please mark the date in your diary – it matters!
