The Conservatives have announced their candidate in the upcoming election for the £70k a year police commissioner in Cambridgeshire.
Initially, John Pye was selected to run in the November ballot despite not being a member of the Tory party.
But he stepped down last week citing internal politics, forcing the local party to choose another candidate.
This weekend, Sir Graham Bright, former MP for Luton, was selected to represent the Conservatives.
Sir Graham said: “I will set about visiting all areas of Cambridgeshire and meeting as many people as possible in order that I can truly represent the views of the public.
“This is going to be a tough job. It is a brand new appointment and I am determined to make it work and to do the very best for the people of Cambridgeshire.”
Sir Graham is a former MP and worked as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Sir John Major, has been a borough and county councillor and has built a successful international business.
He said his priorities were to form a partnership with the public in order to hold the police to account by setting a strategy.
