Independents for Bristol candidates for the May elections

IfB is backing three candidates in the May 22 elections in Bristol.

Stella Perrett is in Redland, where she has already made herself known for her campaigning on a range of issues from the preservation of a world I memorial in Chandos Road to defending the cause of several streets to be included in the Residents Parking Scheme, having been removed from the planned scheme without the residents’ agreement. Other causes have been to help local traders on several fronts and singlehandedly to organise a new polling station, which is going to be in a resident’s home!

Jon Craig is standing in Bishopsworth.  He is one of the most prominent photographers in the city.  He was brought up and went to school in Withywood and many of his family live there today.  He feels that Bishopsworth doesn’t get the attention from Bristol City Council it deserves, and is neglected in a way you’d never see in Clifton, Cotham or Westbury on Trym.

Jane Westhead is the candidate in St George West, where there is a by-election.  Jane works in the caring services and can be seen from time to time in her lilac tunic!  She is a strong believer in a tolerant society where everyone is made to feel at home, whatever their background.  As a councillor she would do all she could to create a cooperative and collaborative community.
