Welcome to my blog

Welcome to my blog – part of my promise to be an open, transparent and accountable mayor.

I’ll be using this blog site to give people a better idea of what I’m working on or to explain in greater detail my thinking on an issue.    Although I’m relatively new to Twitter, I’ve been greatly impressed by its ability to connect with people and how it enables citizens to give me their feedback!   However, there’s only so much you can say in 140 characters so I wanted to add a blog to the way I keep Bristol citizens informed about my progress as their elected mayor.  I’ll also open up the two-way exchange of views I’ve been having on Twitter by hosting some city conversations on this blog site in the near future.

So now you can follow me on Twitter @georgefergusonx or leave your email address on this site to get my latest blog posts.

I look forward to sharing information with you and listening to your views.
