UKIP select youngest Police & Crime Commissioner candidate in the country
Young Independence county chairman for Somerset Aaron Foot has been chosen as UKIP’s Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for Avon and Somerset. At the age of 27 Aaron is the youngest candidate in the country.
Local farmer and businessman Aaron Foot has been chosen to represent UKIP in the forthcoming Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner election.
Aaron grew up near Bristol and was educated in Kingswood before studying farming at Lackham College in Wiltshire. He then went self employed on leaving college in 2008 and entered straight into the dairy industry.
In 2013 he brought a free holding in Somerset of which he is the sole owner and set up his own farm. He is now a self employed dairy farmer and has an extensive background in managing and running a medium sized rural business in Coleford where he also sits as a Councillor.
Previously he has been a Council candidate for UKIP for South Gloucestershire Council and also Mendip District Council.
Mr Foot outlined his priorities if he were successfully elected,
“Too often people believe Avon and Somerset begins and ends in Bristol and Bath and forget about those great many people living in the rural areas of North Somerset, East Somerset, West Somerset and South Gloucestershire.
“If elected I will ensure that no areas of Avon and Somerset are forgotten and I will continue to support the good work of the rural crime team and ensure they are properly resourced.”
