Cllr Lola Oyewusi to be the next Kent Police & Crime Commissioner May 2021
This afternoon I spoke at the virtual launch of the campaign to elect the Labour and Cooperative Party candidate, Lola Oyewusi, as the next Kent Police and Crime Commissioner in May 2021.
I have known Lola for many years and she is the assistant branch secretary of my UNISON branch, as well as being an activist in UNISON both regionally and nationally. She lives and works in Kent and is also a charity food bank volunteer, a religious Pastor and a Parish Councillor.
There were many local Party members, Councillors, trade union activists, magistrates, Labour Leaders and Community & religious leaders including many UNISON colleagues.
I have been out to support Lola and her colleagues in Kent in past elections, with our local West Ham MP Lyn Brown and if allowed (subject to Covid restrictions) will be supporting her and her Labour colleagues, in whatever way we can. Obviously we are due to have elections for the London Mayor and Assembly this year.
At the launch we were shown the endorsement video of Lola by David Lammy MP, the Shadow Justice Minister.
