John Howson - Lib Dem Candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner in the Thames Valley
November 15th elections will be held across England and Wales to elect
Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs), replacing 41 Police Authorities currently managing our police force, including the Thames Valley police force which oversees policing in Wokingham, Reading and Earley.
John Howson, is the Lib Dem candidate for Thames Valley (see YouTube video below), and has a wealth of experience: an Oxfordshire
Magistrate for 22 years, Vice President of the Magistrate’s
Association, businessman, teacher and a victim of crime ( he was stabbed in the classroom when he was a teacher).
Amongst other things, John Howson is very keen on Speedy Justice, saying:
length of time it takes between a crime occuring, particularly when
somebody holds their hands up to it and is caught straight away, should
be 24 hours before they're in court."
