Jon Rogers selected as Liberal Democrat candidate for Bristol Mayor

Liberal Democrat Councillor Jon Rogers has been selected as the party’s candidate for Bristol Mayor, reports the BBC.

He was elected as Councillor for the Ashley ward in 2005 and is currently the City Council’s Executive Member for Care and Health.

After his selection, Cllr Rogers said:

I want to make sure the power stays with councillors and also that I represent Bristol on the national and international stage,” he said.

As a family doctor for 30 years, I know this city inside out – the people, the places, the issues. I know what makes Bristol great and I know what makes life hard for too many Bristolians. I am determined to be a mayor for all of the city, not just one part of it.

Jon and his team have got off the mark very quickly, releasing this campaign video already:

The election takes place on Thursday 15th November.
