Candidate plans an old-fashioned political rally
ARCHITECT George Ferguson, the independent candidate seeking to the Bristol's first elected mayor, is urging people to tell him what their priorities are for the city.
He is hosting a summer jamboree at the Creative Common Big Top at Temple Meads on Wednesday from 6.30pm to 8.30pm to bring his supporters together and those interested in expressing their views and meeting him.
Mr Ferguson described the event as a "good old-fashioned political rally" which would include the launch of a campaign song written and donated by Bristol singer and supporter – Sarah Menage – and her highly popular band, Menage a Quois.
Mr Ferguson said: "It will be fun for all and I hope it will be welcoming in the summer. However more importantly it is an opportunity for me to listen to what people have to say and to expand on my vision. All are welcome who associate themselves with Bristol. My aim is to make everyone in Bristol feel included in the governance of the city. As an independent mayor who puts Bristol first in all decision making, I shall be answerable to the people of Bristol in contrast to a party candidate who will always be answerable to his or her party.

"As an important symbol of change – it is my intention to rename The Council House, which implies that it belongs to the council, to that of Bristol City Hall which belongs to the people. It is significant that Bristol's council decided to claim 'The Council House' for itself when most great English cities have a Town Hall or City Hall that is seen as belonging to the city."
