Hertfordshire police and crime commissioner election: UKIP candidate Marion Mason

THE Hertfordshire police and crime commissioner elections take place on November 15. Meet the UKIP candidate, Marion Mason.

Background: Mrs Mason is a former leader of the Conservative group on Stevenage Borough councillor who defected to UKIP in 2008. She stood in the 2010 General Election and came fourth.

Pledges: Protect frontline policing, fight cuts if at all possible, increase support for young offenders, increase support for victims of crime, fight outsourcing of policing to the private sector.

She said: “I’m a local person and hopefully I want the same of the police that the electorate do. I have been a councillor for 11 years previously and was on quite a few committees scrutiny, overview, audit etc.

“I have a background in public service, I have been in nursing for many years, in the NHS and private sector. I’m a manager of a nursing home, control and managing accounts are part and parcel of that.”
