St George West
Labour’s St George West Candidates:
Councillor Asher Craig
(Deputy Mayor with responsibility for Communities, Equalities and Public Health)
I have had the honour of serving as the ward councillor for St George West since 2016, and can stand on my record of taking action on behalf of residents through my casework and direct involvement with local campaign & community groups, including:
MY PLEDGES TO YOU:
DEVELOP ST GEORGE PARK
I will continue to work with community groups to think big and explore all opportunities to secure St George Park as one of the great destination parks of Bristol.
I will work with local communities to identify residential areas where traffic can be managed and sustainable living promoted to improve air quality and expand outdoor facilities.
AFFORDABLE /SUSTAINABLE HOUSING
Building on the success of the ZEDpodsHousing Scheme, I will work with residents, the council and business to deliver more affordable and energy efficient housing for families and key workers
I will work with local young people to identify what they need in their community so that there is more for them to do in our area.
CLEANER AIR FOR ST GEORGE
I will work with local campaigners to introduce anti-idling zones outside local schools and ensure city-wide plans do not have a negative impact on our air quality.
I hope you’ll agree that I have worked hard for the ward and would ask for your support in May to continue my work in helping St George realise its ambitions to become Greener, Cleaner and Safer. Councillor Asher Craig
