On Friday morning I joined Tim Passmore our Conservative candidate for the Police and Crime Commissioner out in Mildenhall Market and where as previously not many people said they had heard of the election, many people said not only had they would be voting for Tim, his campaign really seems to be gathering momentum and that is because he is working hard travelling the length and breadth of the county unless some other candidates I could mention. Tim gets our rural communities and he gets the issues in places like Haverhill, Lowestoft and Ipswich as well; he has been out and about there regularly too.
On Saturday morning I travelled to Swaffham to be at Jamie Athill’s launch of his Manifesto before we went on a walk about around Swaffham Market. Again people seem to be waking up to the election now their polling card has appeared and I really loved the comment from one old boy when I mentioned other candidates and of Stephen Morphue he said “well he’d get a nose bleed this far west of Norwich”, couldn’t of put it better myself! Jamie is absolutely the right man for the job; he understands rural issues and will be a breath of fresh air helping the police serve their communities across Norfolk from the city issues in Norwich to the smallest rural hamlets.
