Matthew Scott has been elected Kent's Police and Crime Commissioner after a long campaign. On the day of the count, the first round of counting showed the Conservative vote achieved 88,398 votes and UKIP took 73,299 votes.
Matthew Scott was proud to support Time to Talk Day 2016 by pledging to talk about mental health for Kent. The awareness day was run by Time to Change, a mental health campaign run by the charities Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. Matthew was taking part in the national conversation about mental health so that we can break the stigma and make sure people know they are not alone.
