Statement to voters

    In 2012 Bristol voted to have a Mayor.

    Full statement

    It was hoped that this change would provide better leadership and stability. It hasn’t.

    Instead the City has reeled from one crisis to another. £50m wasted on the energy company, housing targets missed, the Colston Hall refurbishment to cost another £50m - the list goes on and on.

    I want to change this. Conservatives are committed to holding a referendum to scrap the City Mayor and bring accountability back to the City Hall rather than this form of unaccountable dictatorship.

    Vote Conservative to secure a better future for Bristol.

    Alastair is a former City Councillor and Lord Mayor of Bristol. He has lived in Bristol for over 30 years, where he has worked and brought up a family.

    As an experienced businessman he will ensure that local tax payers get value for money for Council services.

This statement was added by Alastair Watson, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
