Julia Mulligan

3:42pm 4th September 2013

The candidates to be North Yorkshire's Police Commissioner spent twenty-one pence for each vote cast in last year's election.

Conservative Julia Mulligan, who won, spent just seventeen-thousand pounds on her campaign, but that is ten times more than her Labour opponent Ruth Potter.

Six candidates stood to be Humberside's Police Commissioner spending seventy-seven pence for each vote.

The winner, Conservative Matthew Grove spent twenty-eight-thousand pounds, which was five thousand pounds ahead of former Labour deputy Prime Minister John Prescott.

UKIP candidate and MEP Godfrey Bloom spent most though, forty-thousand pounds or one-pound-eighty-eight for each vote he got.
