Joe Rees Jones
I joined the Labour party out of a strong belief in its values and potential. Now more than ever, people need a government which is on their side, and a party who offer hope for the aspirational and protection for the vulnerable. I was born and raised in Portishead, joining the Labour Party after many years of youth-politics. During my degree in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Sheffield I have been successfully elected as Politics Councillor to the Student Union and university delegate to the NUS. My campaigning and loyalty remains focused on North Somerset as, unlike Sheffield’s safe seats, support for Labour varies at each election. A written statement can only do so much to portray my passion and excitement but with this executive role, I am sure you will quickly see my loyalty and aspirations.
