Kent police boss 'pledges massive pay cut'
Monday 9th May 2016
Matthew Scott, the new Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent, has reportedly pledged to cut his salary by £10,000.
According to online speculation, Mr Scott will take £75,000 a year instead of the £85,000 pay package on offer.
His predecessor Ann Barnes, pictured right, used £15,000 of her salary to fund a youth commissioner.
Mr Scott took Dover, Ashford, Canterbury, Maidstone, Dartford, Gravesham, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge and Malling with UKIP's Henry Bolton winning in the Medway, Swale, Thanet and Shepway districts.
Mr Scott polled 104,000, Mr Bolton got 88,000 and the Lib Dem, Maidstone's David Naghi, received arounf 19,000 votes.
There was a turn out of 21%.
