"Being independent of the political parties has proved to be a great advantage.  I have been able to make decisions in the best interest of Bristol’s residents and the future of our city.  My only purpose is to put Bristol first." 

— Mayor George Ferguson

What you can do to help put Bristol first

Building an effective campaign fund that can compete with the major political parties means that we have to we have to raise tens of thousands of pounds between now and 2016.

We are raising funds for Bristol 1st online via fundsurfer, a new crowdsourcing fundraising platform created and built here in Bristol (and they accept Bristol pounds). Every donation helps towards ensuring party politics stay out of the mayoral role in Bristol.
