“We will be watching closely, Marvin” promises local Green leader

Charlie Bolton, Leader of the Bristol Green councillors has pledged to hold new Mayor Marvin Rees to account on Labour promises to deliver affordable housing, greater equality and protection to vital services from the onslaught of the cuts.

Councillor Bolton used his leader’s speech in the first Full Council meeting since the election to say that Greens will work in a spirit of cooperation with the Mayor on joint action where it will make Bristol more socially just and environmentally sustainable, but would also hold Labour to account to deliver on their pre-election promises.

Councillor Bolton said that in addition to work on affordable housing, equality and anti-austerity, the Mayor should also commit to radically improving air quality, far-reaching improvements to public transport and safer streets.
