Statement to voters
The people of Bristol have been failed by the Mayoral system.
As a scientist, I work on evidence, and the evidence is clear: too much money has been wasted, and not enough put into our local communities. City Mayors can do as they please, overruling council and community views.
Too much power in the hands of one person hinders democracy and accountability. That’s why I’m campaigning to Scrap the Mayor.
A vote for me is a vote for Bristol’s final Mayor; I will back a mayoral referendum, and campaign to end my job.
Whatever happens, the next Mayor will remain in position until 2024, so I have a plan for leading the city recovery from the pandemic over 3 years.
