Labour’s Knowle Candidates:
Brandon went to school locally and now has a degree from UWE. Brandon works at Tesco where he’s an USDAW trade union rep. He wants the council to gain control over the buses and look to a more sustainable future. Brandon would like to expand community projects, activities and resources. He’s passionate about his community.
Brandon: “I’m determined to represent the area I call home. I want to help make Bristol the very best it can be and ensure that all levels of the council are efficient.” “Over recent years, the Labour council has made efforts to improve and has successfully done so in some fronts, however, things still need improving and I hope that should I be elected, that I can ensure that taxpayers get value for money from the council”
Michele has lived in Knowle for 30 years and she values the community, the local facilities, the parks, the library, the pool and access to health services. Michele retired from the council where she worked in neighbourhood and Housing Services. She joined Labour because of the cuts to public services. Many policy areas interest her: housing, transport and the environment.
Michele believes the Councillor’s role is about good communication, being responsive to individual issues and representing the community on major projects.
Michele: “our shopping centre is declining, there are air quality and traffic problems, and good living wages and decent conditions of employment are vital. Having a strong voice and holding decision-makers to account is important – saving Jubilee Pool being a good example.”
If they are elected, they want to continue to meet as many local people as possible and listen to their views, and speak up for every part of Knowle.
