Richard Howitt MEP
"Steve has been a champion for Labour in Norfolk for many years. He led from the front in winning back Norwich City Council for Labour, and was a highly successful council leader. He has done excellent work in building partnerships but at the same time never shirks from a battle with political opponents. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Steve over many years, deeply respect his work and extend to him my personal best wishes."
Terry Jermy - Labour group leader Breckland council & Thetford town council
“Steve understands that we have mixed communities – whether it be rural, urban, market towns and coastal, and we therefore have a mix of crime related issues. Steve fits the bill.”
Patricia Hollis - Baroness Hollis of Heigham
“Highly experienced and of the highest integrity, he would be a strong able and trustworthy commissioner, with a clear grasp of policy and high level management skills. A perfect choice.”
Alan Howarth - Lord Howarth of Newport
“Steve is both humane and tough, and I believe he has the qualities needed to be a first-rate Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk.”
