HOW refreshing to see a candidate who hopes to be elected to public office conducting herself with great dignity.
At a hustings organised by Victim Support, Victoria Atkins demonstrated her excellent qualities for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner after she was barracked by some members of the public as she set out why she believes she will make a good commissioner.
In essence, she explained how she will act without fear or favour for all the people of Gloucestershire, how she will be very comfortable taking the Oath of Impartiality and how she will do her duty as this important position requires.
Finally she pledged to ensure the best value for money and not to increase the burden on Council Tax payers. She will be the people of Gloucestershire's Police and Crime Commissioner.
