Campaign funding became a major issue in the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner election, due to take place on November 15th.
In response to this, we issued the Rotherham Politics Transparency Challenge. We asked candidates to reveal the sources of their campaign funding, the amounts and give us a rough idea of how it is being spent. Additionally we asked if there was anything in the candidates past that might prove embarrassing once known.
So far Nigel Bonson, David Allen and Jonathan Arnott have risen to our simple challenge about transparency.
Sadly we can report to readers, Shaun Wright for Labour and Robert Teal for the LibDems, have failed so far to rise to this simple request.
