Labour’s Bob Jones elected as West Midlands Police & Crime Commissioner

by John Chapman

On 15th November Labour’s Bob Jones was elected Police and Crime Commissioner for our Police Force, and has already kept one of his key campaign promises by vetoing plans to privatise core policing functions.

We know that many electors were unhappy at the way these new posts were bulldozed through Parliament by the Tories and LibDems: it came up again and again on the doorstep, and many Labour members felt exactly the same. But we needed the best candidate to be elected, and the voters duly voted overwhelmingly for Bob.

Interestingly, in Moseley and Kings Heath, Bob Jones took 77.7% of the votes on the second ballot, easily outstripping the Conservative candidate’s 22.3%. The Liberal Democrat candidate had been eliminated in the first ballot, coming in fifth, with just 7.5% of the vote.

We know Bob will serve the region well, and your involvement is key to ensuring that. He will be doing surgeries and public events around the region, as well as being generally contactable in the usual way. All details are here.

So from all of us at Moseley & Kings Heath Labour Party: THANK YOU for electing Bob Jones.
