Day 7 - Q. There have been very few women or people from minority ethnic groups standing as PCC candidates in the past two elections, and even fewer have been elected. How do you think this stark under representation might be addressed?
I am trying to become elected in my own right. For the next election, it would be helpful if more attention was paid to encouraging both candidates and voters to participate.
As this is a full-time paid position it should be attractive to anyone interested in the task of the PCC. Perhaps some ‘are you interested in becoming a PCC events nationally might help as well as sessions at Party Conferences to spread the word.
