Marion Mason is the UKIP candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner in Hertfordshire.
Marion Mason is a former Stevenage Councillor and has lived in Hertfordshire for 42 years. As a Councillor she was on several Committees: Audit, Scrutiny Overview, Planning and Development.
Marion strongly believes that accountability of the elected Police and Crime Commissioner will give a voice to the public and build trust between the Police and the local community – which Marion is confident she can achieve, due to her knowledge and experience.
Marion has worked as a nurse for over 40 years in N.H.S and Private sector, which included working as an Occupational Health Nurse at former B.A.E Stevenage site.
More recently Marion worked as Manager of a Nursing Home for the elderly and helped commission 140-bedded home. She has experience of working within budgets and financial control – an essential aspect of this role.
Marion empathises with small businesses who cope with high insurance premiums for crime prevention. Marion has experience in small business and was nominated as Hertfordshire’s ‘Business Person of the Year’ in 2006 and 2007. She believes there should be ‘zero tolerance’ of anti-social behaviour.
Marion believes in local support to protect our community-based enterprises and is a former member of a Management Committee for a local community centre and Charitable Trust. She was a Committee Member of the Hertfordshire Nursing and Residential Association and member of the Management Committee of Age Concern.
Marion served as a local School Governor and feels strongly about support for young people and would like to see more facilities in place for would-be Young Offenders. She believes problems materialise at school and ‘suspension’ and ‘expulsion’ are not always the solution.
Marion will campaign for improvements in Victim Support. She will also encourage increased visible presence of ‘police on the beat’ and does not agree with outsourcing sections of our Police Forces.
