The Liberal Democrats are delighted to announce that Councillor Sarah Murray is their candidate for the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner .

Cllr Sarah Murray is a strong candidate with a wealth of experience in the criminal justice system gained through her experience in the field of law, teaching and working in mental health.  

Sarah is an advocate for mental health services and has also campaigned vigorously to end violence against women and girls.  She believes the root causes of crime need to be tackled and although the Liberal Democrats would scrap Police and Crime Commissioners, whilst the role exists Sarah would like the opportunity to bring liberal values to West Mercia Police Force to help tackle crime and provide policing that meets the needs of the community.  As an avid Lib Dem campaigner, Sarah has a proven track record of listening to voters and campaigning to improve their lives.

With the surge in Liberal Democrat support across the region, particularly in Shropshire, the race is widely considered to be between Sarah Murray and the Conservative candidate.

Cllr Murray said ‘I am delighted to have made it through the selection process.  I believe I can bring a degree of authenticity and diversity to the role.  My background in law, teaching and mental health lends itself to a role that requires a dynamic approach to tackling and preventing criminal activity.  I would love the opportunity to bring Liberal Democrat values to West Mercia.’
