Ken Maddock chosen as Conservative candidate for Avon and Somerset police commissioner

Congratulations to Cllr Ken Maddock, the former leader of Somerset County Council, who has been selected to be the Conservative candidate for Avon and Somerset in the Police and Crime Commissioner elections taking place on November 15th.

Cllr Maddock stood down as council leader in April in order to seek selection.

He says:

"What needed to be done at Somerset County Council was to stretch every pound and make it go further, and in my book that needs to be done in the local police force.

"The business is ripe for reform - that's not to say that they haven't been doing a terrific job in many respects because they have - but we can all learn."
