9:32am Monday 22nd October 2012 in News
The UK Independence Party looks set to join the race to become Hertfordshire’s first police and crime commissioner.
Marion Mason, the party’s former parliamentary candidate for Stevenage, has announced she is running in the November 15 election.
The former Conservative councillor on Stevenage Borough Councillor defected to UKIP in 2008 citing the EU and immigration as key issues that convinced her to cross sides.
The final list of candidates is due to be announced later today.
Ms Mason will be lining up against candidates from the Conservatives, Labour and the Liberal Democrats for the £75,000-a-year job.
