A CANDIDATE for the UK Independence Party has been selected to stand in the forthcoming police and crime commissioner elections in Hertfordshire.

Marion Mason, a former Stevenage councillor, was confirmed as the UKIP candidate one day before the closing date for official nominations.

Ms Mason, who stood in the European parliamentary elections in 2009, will go up against candidates from the three main parties on Thursday, November 15.

Among her key priorities, the UKIP hopeful believes there should be a zero tolerance policy on anti-social behaviour and wants to see continued support for victims of crime.

She also said she has “particular empathy” for small businesses who have to cope with high insurance premiums for crime prevention.

Ms Mason commented: “I strongly believe that the accountability of the elected police and crime commissioner gives a voice to the public and builds trust between the police and the local community.

“My long experience and knowledge of dealing with the public means that I am confident I can contribute significantly to building that trust.”

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
