Chris Briton selected as Green PCC Candidate

We are delighted to announce that former Green Mayor of Wells, and City Councillor Chris Briton has been selected as the Green Party candidate for the up-and-coming Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner election on Thursday, 5th May 2016.

We need to raise a staggering £5000 (!) in order for Chris to be able to stand… which, in Chris’s own words is “an outrageously huge sum of money, and only allows rich individuals or wealthier parties to contest the election… In my view that’s undemocratic!
