Brighton and Hove launch with Peter Kyle

Michael Jones with Peter Kyle MP

Michael Jones attended a meeting of Labour supporters from Brighton and Hove at the weekend, where he received the   endorsement of Hove MP Peter Kyle, Brighton and Hove Labour council leader Warren Morgan and dozens of local councillors, members and supporters for his campaign in the upcoming elections to unseat the current Tory Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner.

At the meeting, Michael vowed to work with the senior ranks of Sussex Police to reverse the savage reductions being inflicted to PCSOs and police officers in the City currently proposed under the Tory PCC’s budget, if elected as PCC. He also vowed to take measures in close consultation with local LGBT and BAME groups to address the reasons for the concerning levels of under-reporting of hate crime, acknowledged by Sussex Police itself.

Peter Kyle MP said:  "Michael’s background and experience is exactly what we want from our Commissioner. We need someone with the skills to be able target policing where we need it – including back patrolling our communities and giving attention back to anti-social behaviour and car crime.

“I’ll be voting for Michael because he has the strength, knowledge and experience to put residents’ interests first on policing, and start working on day one.”
