“My priorities are more homes, better transport and secure jobs for the people of the West of England. I will bring my long standing skills of negotiation, consultation and probity to make this new partnership work.” Lesley Mansell
Lesley Mansell is the Labour Party candidate for the West of England Metro Mayor election, taking place on 4th May.
This new regional mayor will oversee a combined umbrella authority over Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Bath & North East Somerset (BANES) with new powers and more than £1 billion of investment promised for transport, housing and skills.
We need a Labour Metro Mayor to work with Marvin Rees and Bristol’s Labour-led council to fix some of the biggest problems in our city. After huge Tory cuts, our local services rely on a joined up approach to funding public services, housing, jobs and opportunities that will tackle inequality in the city and the region head on.
This is what Lesley is pledging to do: Read more about Lesley's pledges and policies here

CANVASSING SESSIONS THIS WEEK - WE NEED YOU!
Click here for the full list of sessions where we will be out canvassing for Lesley Mansell (Metro Mayor election on May 4th) and for our Labour MP Karin Smyth (General election on June 8th)
Even if you’ve never campaigned before, you're really welcome at any of our campaigning sessions. And you can always come along a few minutes early to say hello and get more of a briefing from the person leading the session.
Also, if you'd rather not knock on doors you can also help deliver leaflets - this makes a huge difference. So if you have a couple of hours free, do get in touch.
