Cynical electioneering mars Police and Crime Commissioner elections

Liberal Democrats have dismissed the current Hertfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner's proposals to reduce his council tax precept as 'cynical electioneering'. Speaking for the Liberal Democrat Group Chris White said: 'What a surprise. With elections for the Police and Crime Commissioner position only weeks away, we suddenly find he has put round a letter saying how marvellous he is and a suggested financial sweetener.

'This sort of activity can only make the public even more cynical about politicians. What we need to hear about is a budget to secure adequate policing in Hertfordshire. I doubt very much that cutting the already squeezed funding is likely to help the public feel safer.'
