Matthew Ellis, Conservative, has been successfully elected
as the first ever Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire.
History was made yesterday as Conservative candidate Matthew Ellis signed the Oath of Office to become the first Police and Crime Commissioner for Staffordshire.
A tough mid-term election, fought in November, had all the potential to be – like the weather – a washout, however thanks to you, Staffordshire remains true blue.
Thank you to everyone who attended our fundraising events, those who delivered leaflets, stuffed envelopes and supported Matthew on his events across the County, the teams of foot and phone canvassers, those who put up ‘Vote Matthew Ellis’ signs, and those who gave a donation – big or small – to the campaign. The support received from associations, councillors and MPs has been tremendous and we could not have done it without you.
Friday’s result should put a bounce in our step as we look towards next year’s important county council elections, however the work goes on to ensure we build on this victory over the next 6 months.
Thanks again for all your help, and look forward to seeing you on the campaign trail very soon.
