Businessman Savage to run for role of Police and Crime Commissioner for Avon & Somerset.
Businessman John Savage was yesterday chosen as Labour’s candidate for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner for Avon & Somerset.
As the Daily Press reported yesterday, Bob Ashford was forced out of the race in controversial circumstances, because of a minor criminal conviction 46 years ago.
Mr Savage has been involved in leading Bristol West and the Bristol Initiative for more than two decades, and chairs the University Hospitals Bristol NHS Trust. He said it was an honour to be Labour’s candidate in November’s election, and he would use his skills and experience to stand up for local communities.
“I fully understand the need for a new approach to resource allocation in these testing economic times, but the Government is making the wrong choices on crime, taking frontline police off the streets, weakening powers to deal with antisocial behaviour, and opening the door to the privatisation of core services – I will fight the impact of these reckless changes.”

Mr Ashford quit earlier this week because in 1966, when aged 13, he was convicted of trespass on the railway and possession of an offensive weapon, an air gun, and fined £2 and 10 shillings for each offence. Tough rules on candidates that outlaw anyone who has ever committed an imprisonable offence meant he could not stand.
