Interviews with the West of England (WECA) Metro Mayor Candidates

Can we get a Metro Mayor who will support progressive policies?

Compass Bristol and West invites you to three separate events, one for each of the progressive West of England Combined Authority candidates – for the Green Party, Liberal Democrats and Labour Party.

Candidates will have 10 minutes to put forward their vision for the region. Then the chair will ask them their views on Compass priorities: the Green New Deal, Progressive Alliance, electoral reform and basic income.

Then we will open up to a Q&A session for the last 30 minutes.
