So the council will send out an “Electoral Address Brochure” with an electoral address from every mayoral candidate.
They will charge each candidate £2000 for the privilage.
What do I think?
1. All elections should be free to enter, otherwise it is potentially exclusive and therefore not democratic. Therefore the £500 Deposit is undemocratic and should be abolished.
2. This Brochure charge, should only cover the actual cost of publishing. The Publishing contract should have been “sold” to the “cheapest” bidder.
3. I think all candidates should pay equally towards this Brochure cost. Why should the people of Bristol pay for me to promote my campaign.
4. £2000 to get my message about the Unconditional Basic Income Guarantee through the letterbox of every household in Bristol, is a Bstard Bargain!!!!!!!!
Live Love Dream
