Vote Lesley Mansell for Metro Mayor on May 4th

On Thursday 4th May we will go to the polls to elect the Mayor for the West of England Combined Authority (Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire).  The new mayor will have the power to make decisions locally on issues that affect all of us such as:

  • affordable housing and fair rent
  • public services
  • jobs, support for small businesses  and economic growth
  • regional transport

and will have control of funding worth more than £900 million – enough to make a real difference .

 

Most importantly for Labour voters in Bath we will actually have a voice in this election. There is a large Labour vote in Bristol and throughout the area (Bristol already has a Labour mayor) and the results for the West of England in the 2015 general election showed Labour in second place behind the Conservatives. Only Labour can defeat the Tories in the Metro Mayor election.

Here’s what you can do to help Labour win the best for the West:

  • Make sure you’re registered to vote and apply for a postal vote if you will not be able to vote in person on the day
  • Display Lesley’s poster in your window
  • Volunteer to help the campaign
  • Share this information and

Make Lesley Mansell your first choice on the ballot paper – there is no point in voting tactically.

Introducing Labour's Candidate for the Newbridge By-Election

Pam Richards

I have lived in Newbridge for over 40 years, working as a Social Services manager with older people and people with disabilities.  Now I am retired, I enjoy looking after my grandchildren and having time to campaign on local issues.  I was heavily involved in the successful campaign to stop plans for a Bus Rapid Transit route cutting through Newbridge.  I currently co-ordinate a campaign group (Protect Our NHS) to try and stop cuts, privatisation and fragmentation to the NHS locally.

 I am an experienced campaigner and a former Bath councillor, I have a strong track record of working with local people and getting things done.   We need more Labour councillors to fight for the services our community needs, oppose damaging cuts to local services made by both Conservative and Liberal Democrat run councils.  

 

Labour Works For You

As your Labour councillor, I will challenge the austerity policies of this
Tory government which are destroying local services, pushing up the council tax, and hurting the most
vulnerable people in our community.
