The Conservative party has chosen South Northamptonshire councillor Stephen Mold as their candidate to replace Adam Simmonds as the Police and Crime Commissioner.
Mr Mold, who lives in Hartwell and runs an international mothering and baby business based in Northampton, was chosen ahead of Councillor Andre de Savage during a hustings event on Sunday.
Mr Mold said; “It is a great honour to be chosen as the Conservative candidate for next year’s police and crime election for Northamptonshire.
“I will be working tirelessly to ensure a safer Northamptonshire for all and will be addressing the significant challenges of domestic violence, child abuse and rural crime.
“As a father of three it is very important for me that we have a first-class police force here in Northamptonshire and if elected I will do everything in my power to ensure this.”
Mr Mold is a school Governor of Hartwell Primary School and is a trustee of Grandparents Plus, a charity which champions the role of grandparents in children’s lives.
