Labour’s Westbury on Trym and Henleaze Candidates:

Miranda Mc Cabe

Bio:

I have been a member of the Labour Party for 30 years, then left in 2005 and rejoined 5 years ago, so 35 years in total. I know Westbury well as I taught in the Primary School for 26 years, I have a 93 year old mother living in Westbury and a brother living in Henleaze. Through these connections I am aware of local issues and needs. I stood in WOTHen in the last Council elections and am happy to canvass, run street stalls, leaflet and so forth, Covid permitting of course.

I am in my fifth year as Chair of Bishopston and Ashley Down. Before the pandemic curtailed our activity I was active in local campaigns and opposition to NHS cuts. At Christmas time we held a street stall inviting people to make donations for the night shelter and food banks. We advertised this well in the previous week and collected between five and six hundred pounds worth of food and nearly £200 in cash in a single morning. It is vitally important that we get across the message that it is Government cuts that have cash-strapped the Council, causing misery for some of our citizens. I think in the circumstances the Council have found themselves in in Bristol they have maintained services remarkably well.

Sam Taylor-Elliott has lived in Bristol for nearly five years and spent two and a half of those managing our local Labour MP‘s constituency office in Westburyon-Trym and Henleaze ward. Sam has a unique insight into resident’s views and concerns. Sam worked closely with Darren to ensure resident’s views were heard on the A4018, library closures, concerns about local high streets, Stoke Lodge and pavement parking. Many constituents and party members will have spoken with Sam (or had an email) if they contacted Darren asking for help or sharing their concerns. Sam organised many constituency events as well as the MP’s visits to local schools, organisations and businesses. After leaving Darren’s team last year, Sam now works in the NHS and lives with her husband and three rescue dogs near Kings Weston Estate. Sam is a committed environmentalist and passionate advocate of public services including green spaces and libraries. Sam is concerned about the impact Tory Planning reforms will have on Westburyon-Trym and Henleaze, including the threat of empty retail being turned into HMOs with very little input from residents or the council. Along with Labour, Sam pledges to fights these undemocratic changes every step of the way.
