Green London Assembly Member now Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb

Great news here! The first of many, I hope:
 

Green London Assembly Member Jenny Jones now Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb

 

Jenny Jones has today formally become Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb, the Green Party has announced.

 

Jones has served as Deputy Mayor of London and has been a member of the London Assembly since 2000.

 

Jones said: “It’s a long journey from a council estate in Moulsecoomb to the Palace of Westminster, but it’s important to remember our roots.

 

“Until we have a proportional representation voting system we are locked into an inherently unfair democratic process.

 

“With this firmly in mind, I’ll speak out on ecological and social issues, while arguing that the chamber needs very radical reform to reflect the UK population.”

 

Jones’ positions include Leader of the London Assembly’s Green Group, member of the Confirmation Hearings Committee, member of the Economy Committee, member of the Environment Committee and Deputy Chair of the Police and Crime Committee.

 

During her time at the London Assembly, Ms Jones has focused on policing and civil liberties, road safety, housing costs and conditions, cycling and walking and legacy from 2012 Olympics and  Paralympics.

 

Jones grew up in Brighton and finished in the top three of the 2012 London Mayoral Elections, the highest ever finish for a Green candidate.

 

Ends
