Greens choose Southville Candidate

Steve Clarke has been chosen to be the Green Party Candidate for Southville ward at
next year’s local elections.

Mr Clarke said

“I am very excited by the prospect of representing the local interests of
the fantastic communities of Southville and parts of Ashton in the Council. In this
time of political uncertainty the Green Party have a unique opportunity to make
Bristol a really sustainable and prosperous city to make our children proud.”

Steve, who lives in Hamilton Road, Southville, was born in Bristol, is a Bristol City
supporter, one of the founders of the Bristol Pound and a Director of BIG Green
Week. He was a partner of Clarke Willmott Solicitors. Through his work at the
Bristol Pound he has campaigned to help local independent businesses to preserve the
independence and vigour of our high streets while creating local jobs.

He added

“I am really looking forward to listening to the people of Southville and
understanding what issues matter the most to them. I would be very proud to represent
them.”

The Greens have been campaigning for many years in Southville to support the local high street, improve the local environment and parks and to promote sustainable forms of transport for the area. In the last election, Charlie Bolton replaced Tess Green, winning the seat by 380 votes from Labour.
