Calling all Bath Voters
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.
