Luton and Bedfordshire Green Party has announced Adrian Spurrell as their candidate for this year’s Bedford Mayoral election.

“At a time when councils all over England, indeed all over the world, are declaring climate emergencies and committing to becoming carbon free, it’s time that voters in Bedford Borough had a Mayor who understood that for us to live a decent, happy life, we need to look after the planet on which we depend and worked to make sure this was this case,” said Adrian.

Adrian lives in Kempston and is active in Bedford’s community, being a trustee of three local charities and sitting on the board of the local Credit Union.  He works as a consultant helping organisations to work better and improve the quality of their leadership.

Adrian is passionate that Bedford needs to change the way it is going about solving the challenges we face – traffic congestion, poor air quality, growing inequality and a stressed health system.  He also believes that the people of Bedford should be actively involved in being part of those solutions.
