Citizen editor: Police and crime commissioner candidates must get their messages across
VOTER Ted Yates was simply walking past the police and crime commissioner hustings in Stroud and popped in.
Before the event he said he did not know who to vote for however, having attended, his mind had been made up.
That is because he got to see all the candidates in one place at one time airing their views which is invaluable.
But this is fine for the few dozen in the room in Stroud but what about everyone else? There have been many critics of the creation of the post at all but the fact of the matter is – it is happening and now these candidates have a duty to do all they can to get their messages and views to the public.

So that is why The Citizen has launched the Safe Schools campaign aimed at championing communities such as the one in Stonehouse featured who are attempting to clampdown on irresponsible drivers.
A BOOKLET will soon be dropping on the doormat of every 14 to 16-year-old in Gloucestershire aimed at inspiring our young people about education and work.
