Green Party newsletter for Bedminster, Ashton, Ashton Vale & Bower Ashton No. 2, 2016
The second edition of Greenminster, the Green Party newsletter for Bedminster, Ashton, Ashton Vale and Bower Ashton is now being delivered by volunteers throughout the area. In this second edition of 2016: reporting the results of our local survey in which we have knocked on every door in the ward; a statement of commitment from the councillor candidates; where the local councillor candidates stand all the top issues as rated by local people (public services, transport, green spaces and housing being the top four, in this order); some examples of the work done by the current 14 Green councillors; the Greens as the main challengers to Labour in Bedminster and the closeness of the contest; endorsement of Glenn Vowles and Will Quick as councillor candidates and Tony Dyer as the Mayoral candidate by Alan Baker, local lay minister and school governor; an update on the air pollution debate in which Labour say they favour a clean air zone but have voted against the budget needed to implement it and removed any reference to a deadline for its achievement.
