George Ferguson ponders Bristol mayoral role
Former RIBA president George Ferguson is considering running for Bristol mayor
The Bristol-based architect (pictured) said acting as the city’s first mayor would be a ‘great project’ but he was unsure whether or not he would enter the race – reported The Bristol Evening Post.
On 3 May Bristol will hold a referendum on whether to create the post of a directly elected city mayor and replace the current system where a leader is chosen by city councillors.
Birmingham, Bradford, Coventry, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Sheffield and Wakefield will hold similar polls.
