Conservatives in Lincolnshire have selected their candidate for the county’s next Police and Crime Commissioner ahead of next year’s elections.

Marc Jones has been named as the Conservative candidate, having previously stood for election as MP for Great Grimsby in May this year.

Mr Jones was born in the East Marsh area of Grimsby in 1972, then was moved to Lincoln as a child and has lived there ever since. He has been married to his wife Rachel for 20 years and they have a six year old daughter Tabitha.

Five years ago he set up his own business offering homes to those in need and providing advice to tenants and landlords on creating long term sustainable tenancies. Mr Jones also devised a program to bring empty homes back into use and let them at affordable rents to those most in need which was taken up by several local councils.

According to his website, Mr Jones’ interest in politics started with him getting involved with a range of local community groups, schools and activities. He has helped to set up youth groups, sat on residents panels working with police to deal with crime and anti-social behaviour, and has been a school governor at two schools, one mainstream and one helping primary aged children with behavioural difficulties.

He has previously been a councillor on the City of Lincoln Council gaining a range of experiences from leading on planning, economic development, finance and housing.
