Bristol's Conservative Party urge voters to say 'yes' to Bristol mayor
BRISTOL'S Conservative Party has launched its own leaflet about the elected mayor – encouraging people to say "yes".
The group is backing the idea of a directly elected mayor for the city, arguing a new, more stable form of leadership is needed to address Bristol's shortcomings.
The leaflet was launched by group leader Councillor Peter Abraham at College Green yesterday.
Their message lists three reasons why people should vote for change in the referendum on May 3.

The Tories say a city mayor would provide much stronger leadership, have a higher national and international profile and possess a genuine mandate to get things done.
It's also fair to say that with the party in third place on the city council, an elected mayor is their best chance for grabbing power.
Mr Abraham said: "Aside from the key persuasive reasons for voting yes given in our doorstep leaflet, government has already promised that city mayors will be granted extra powers and enjoy unprecedented access to decision-makers on a national stage."
