Ed has lived locally for over 25 years – his kids went to Hillcrest School, where as Chair of Governors, he helped regain OFSTED “good” rating. Ed worked for the City Council for 15 years and knows how it works inside-out. As Crime Reduction Manager, he worked with the Police and residents to reduce crime.
As Head of Local and Sustainable Transport, he improved road safety, implemented a 20mph speed limit, doubled cycling, and achieved national recognition for growing public transport. His experience will significantly benefit Windmill Hill and Totterdown.
Ed knows how to get things done and can use this experience directly to benefit Windmill Hill and Totterdown. He believes that Windmill Hill faces a double challenge – the huge scale of local development and being on the edge of the new Clean Air Zone.
Ed said, “I am proud to be part of the Bristol Green Party who have already achieved a great deal locally and nationally. The Green Party is winning all over Bristol and holding the Mayor to account.
“Unlike the other parties, Green councillors can vote for what they think is right for the local ward rather than having to follow the orders of the Party.
“As a councillor, I will continue to work hard for the local community, as well as being part of the global movement to tackle the climate crisis.”
