Conservatives have announced that Angus Macpherson has been chosen as their candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner. Angus was chosen in a selection process which engaged many hundreds of Conservative party members from across Swindon and Wiltshire. Candidates faced three challenging question and answer meetings with Party members, held at Devizes, Wroughton and Salisbury. Angus is an accountant whose previous experience includes serving as a borough councillor in Swindon and as a member of the Police Authority. He is also a trustee of several Wiltshire charities. Angus comments, “I am absolutely delighted to have been selected by hundreds of Conservative Party members from the across Swindon and Wiltshire. It has been a challenging process and I am hugely grateful to those who have given me this opportunity. This is a new and vitally important job which will make a real positive difference to the lives of all of us living in Swindon and Wiltshire.” “It is great opportunity to build on the improvements made by Wiltshire police in recent years in tackling crime and community safety to the next level. I will work closely with the local authorities and others who can help reduce crime, reduce re-offending, improve efficiency and make the criminal justice system better for victims, in a transparent and accountable way. I believe I have the skills and experience to do this, working for all the residents of Swindon and Wiltshire" “Over the next four months I will be devoting my time to visiting as many communities and meeting as many people as possible, listening to their views, concerns and priorities for improving policing locally.” “I will be campaigning in every one of the 7 constituencies that make up Swindon and Wiltshire; we will be working hard to ensure that we win this election, so we can get on with the job of improving policing and reducing crime."
