Labour Party chooses Boston councillor to contest police and crime commissioner role

A BOSTON councillor will represent the Labour Party in November’s Police and Crime Commissioner election.

Coun Paul Gleeson will contest the ballot, which will see voters across the county choose a politician to become the public figurehead for the force in Lincolnshire.

Counc Gleeson was originally second in the party’s selection process to Phil Dilks but he was forced to stand down due to a minor conviction in the 1960s.

He was officially selected to take up the nomination by the party today.
