Dear Cllr Wright,
I understand that you have sought, and have received, the nomination of The Labour Party as their candidate for election as the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner.
As an active and empowered citizen with a deep interest in the democratic process and those who aspire to public office I wish to gain a further understanding of how and who is funding your campaign for election as SY PCC.
Please will you inform me of the fundraising methods, amounts and origins of any monies you have received thus far, either from private donors or organisations such as Rotherham Labour Wards etc.
I appreciate that you may be under no legal obligation under the Freedom of Information Act to disclose such information, but I hope that you are able to respond to me in an open and transparent manner and provide me with the requested information so that I can gain an informed view of which organisations and individuals are financing you as a candidate for SY PCC.
As and when other individuals publically declare their candidacy for election as SY PCC I shall request the same information from them so that I can impartially decide which candidate has my interests at heart and who would be the best person to represent me as SY PCC.
Donald H. Buxton
