UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP has issued a rallying call to West Midlands’ voters ahead of the Police & Crime Commissioner election.
The party’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) campaign is intensifying following yesterday’s media launch at Birmingham City Football Club.
Speaking today, following yesterday’s successful launch event, Nigel Farage has urged voters to vote for Keith Rowe, on August 21st.
Nigel Farage said: “Keith brings a lifetime of working in the family business in the Midlands and has raised his own family there.
“Like so many of our candidates he knows his patch and brings real life experience from the patch into the role.
“He is focused on serving his constituents rather than being a political ‘yes man’. Surely, this is exactly the breath of fresh air politics needs. I hope the people of the West Midlands get behind him.”
Keith Rowe, UKIP’s Police & Crime Commissioner candidate, said: “I would like to thank Nigel for his very kind words.
“The campaign is going incredibly well. Our policies are clear. We are completely opposed to zero-hour contracts and privatisation in the police force.
“Unnecessary expenditure should be cut and frontline policing should be protected. I call of people to vote for real positive change – vote UKIP on August 21st.”
UKIP West Midlands MEP James Carver, said: “This is a very interesting time in British politics. In our region we gained three seats in May’s European elections and since that time we have kept that momentum going and indeed gained increasing support.”
Fellow UKIP West Midlands MEP Bill Etheridge, added: “This election is incredibly important. UKIP has the right man and the right policies for the job.
“Keith is a fantastic candidate and would make an excellent Police & Crime Commissioner.”
