Yesterday I went to M Shed to see Marvin sworn in as Mayor of Bristol. It was a happy positive occasion, not just for those of us that have spent weeks tramping the streets, but because it felt like a new start.
My friend who had been at George Ferguson's swearing in 4 years ago said that was a very formal event full of men in grey suits and she was the only one who booed when he thanked the Merchant Venturers for their support.
Yesterday couldn't have been more different. The audience had people from all over Bristol, children - most of them Marvin's wandered about and the audience cheered and clapped.
Miles delivered a poem about Bristol's connections and contradictions ending by saying we might not be able to do everything but we must try.
Marvin's speech talked about a new way of working, transparent and involving and working in partnership. He acknowledged the challenges of the Tory budget cuts and the impact of their policies in Bristol but also how working together we might be able to find new solutions. He is committed to a cabinet which has gender balance, diversify, and has representatives from all the political parties.
The feeling in the room afterwards was positive and it’s up to us all now to make sure that we make the change real- it felt we are in a good place to start.
