Final nominations for Suffolk PCC election

April 10, 2016 9:33 AM

With less than a month to go until the Police & Crime Commissioner elections on 5th May, nominations have now closed. The final list of candidates standing in Suffolk is as follows:

  • Helen Korfanty (Liberal Democrats)
  • Tim Passmore (Conservative and Unionist Party)
  • Cath Pickles (Labour)
  • Terence Carter (Green Party)
  • Simon Tobin (UK Independence Party).

Your vote is important, because the elected PCC will control a large budget and be responsible for ensuring that Suffolk Police are held to account for their decisions. In a time of severe cost-cutting, which has seen a consequent reduction in the provision of community policing, it is important that the person elected to be Suffolk's PCC has the right priorities and the appropriate experience to ensure that the public get the best outcomes possible. Helen Korfanty (the Liberal Democrat candidate) is ideally placed for this, and you can read more about her on this website both here and in a number of articles here.

In order to vote, you need to register by 18th April.

If you haven't already registered, you can do so at the government's website: https://www.gov.uk/register-to-vote.
