|Public Meeting over a cup of tea to meet the new Police & Crime Commissioner |
candidates at The Fleet Centre, Fletton.
Sir Graham Bright, the current Cambridgeshire Police & Crime Commissioner, initially bankrolled by the Conservative Party for his election to office, has at the completion of his initial term, decided to call it a day, and not to stand for re-election.
It hasn't in our view been a roaring success, and the costs associated with his Office seemed to be grossly extravagant, considering the tight rein the police service is currently under.
But time marches on, and there are some new candidates eager to fill the vacancy, but only if you vote for them on May 5th, alongside your vote for a local councillor. Some of the 'old guard' have the cheek to offering themselves for re-election, but that is democracy folks!
All seats on the Peterborough City Council having been vacated, and its a chance to introduce some new Council blood perhaps? Highly appropriate as the Fleet Centre is the regular location for ....wait for it .... blood donations...
A Public Meeting is being held on Wednesday 13th April, at 6:30pm, The Fleet Centre, Fleet Way, Fletton, PE2 8DL.
Admittedly the Fleet Tea 'n' Meet is far too early for those hard working voters who hold down a job and have a daily commute.
But fear not we'll be sending a representative, and if the candidates in addition send us a brief statement on their intentions, we'll record it on here.
