Councillor/Commissionmer Shaun Wright: I am sure that readers of this blog are tiring quickly of the assertions and innuendos about whether Councillor Wright received donations to his selection (not Election) campaign to be the Labour PCC candidate that were not registered with the Electoral Commission. Among those who have an interest in this matter being laid to rest must be those organisations who have been suggested as the sources of such donations.
The other issues facing the entire South Yorkshire Policing community including the Commissioner are far too serious for any doubts in this matter to linger. I am therefore showing below in this entry to this blog the full and direct contact details of a senior responsible official within the Electoral Commission:
Martin Carr, Senior Adviser
The Electoral Commission
3 Bunhill Row
London EC1Y 8YZ
Tel: 020 7271 0513
Fax: 020 7271 0505
If anyone has any evidence in this matter, they should contact this official directly or stop making assertions. It will not do that unsubstantiated rumour and assertion are being used as a substitute for evidence in such a serious matter as this. We are entitled to believe that any Elected Police and Crime Commissioner has always acted in full compliance with both the law and with all the appropriate rules and regulations that concern their Election. Time for that to be proven beyond all doubt.
