I did vote, even the candidates didn't send any literature. I found the information I needed in the M.E.N.
I hope that Mr. Lloyd keeps his promise about more active police on the streets.

I e mailed the Labour party in Bury this week after receiving a newsletter.I had a couple of questions about contents of this newsletter.Why was it posted 2 days befofe the PCC elections asking members of the public to attend a meeting in Prestwich that had been and gone at the beginning of November.
Question two was asking how and who is going to enforce the 20mph speed limits in side streets in Whitefield. This scheme is going to cost the council or rather us £70,000.The e mail i sent was not acknowledged or replied to. I can just imagine the service we will receive from Tony Lloyd when even simple questions are being dismissed.

Tony Warren won I think because he was the only candidate who sent a copy of his election statement out by Royal Mail. I'm slightly baffled by all the negativity surrounding the distribution of info regarding the PCC election. I had all the info. I needed why didn't others?
1) Received letter in post from the PCC election officials with the website address and informing me that all candidate info would be available on the website from 26th October. It also suggested I register so they could send me an Email reminder. Duly registered.
2) Reminder Email arrived approx 27th Oct. Visited website, sure enough all candidate info. and election statements were there. Made my 2 selections and waited for postal vote forms to arrive.
3) Received in post from Tony Warren a copy of his election statement. Nothing from any other candidate.
4) Postal vote forms arrived, filled them in and sent them off in post.
5) What could be more effective than that. Simples!!
