JONATHON SEED CANDIDATE FOR POLICE & CRIME COMMISSIONER

A well-respected political and community leader who can both win the election for the Conservative Party in May 2020 AND hold the police to account and be responsible for setting the direction of our policing thereafter.

This website is to let you know what I am engaged in with my political work and campaigns in Wiltshire and Swindon.  I am regularly involved in work to try and both improve and scrutinise the policing of Wiltshire and Swindon.  I am always engaged in my Wiltshire Council Division of Summerham and Seend which includes the villages of Semington, Great Hinton, Steeple Ashton, Keevil, Bulkington, Seend and Poulshot. This is a very sparsely populated rural Division which currently is spread over the three Parliamentary Constituencies of Devizes, South West Wiltshire and Chippenham.  I am deeply involved in my Council Portfolio for Flooding in Wiltshire and I am closely involved in the work of the Conservative Group on Wiltshire Council as the Group Secretary.  I am Chairman of the Melksham Area Board.  I also have an extensive portfolio of voluntary work which is my opportunity to give service to the community where I live, work and take part in sporting activity.  Included in all of this is extensive work within the Conservative Party where I hold several posts.

In my first term as a Wiltshire Councillor I was selected to serve on several council committees and was chairman of three, including the influential Melksham Area Board, the Wiltshire County Licensing Policy Committee and the Operational Flood Working Group for the north of the County before the 2013 local election. After that election I was appointed as the Cabinet Member for Communities, Campuses, Area Boards, Leisure, Libraries and Flooding on Wiltshire Council. In 2011 I was moved to take on the large Housing portfolio as well as retaining Leisure, Libraries and Flooding.
