A CAMPAIGNER against a Travellers’ site in Meriden wants to become the West Midlands’ first Police Commissioner.
David McGrath, 52, a former Birmingham City Councillor, is the third person to declare an intention to stand as a Conservative Party candidate.
Mr McGrath has led a campaign against a group of travellers who set up in Eaves Green Lane, Meriden, in April 2010.
After countless court hearings and a round the clock protest that has lasted more than 700 days campaigners secured a court order telling the Travellers to leave by March 2013.
Mr McGrath spent eight years in politics before quitting in 1996.
