Mark Wright has not been the Councillor for Kingsdown since May 2016. His e-news for his Hotwells and Harbourside ward still goes out to some people on his contacts list who live in Kingsdown.
Apart from my regular Focus newsletter, as a councillor for your area added to my patch I also send an e-news to residents who want to be kept informed. If you wish to join this list please contact me at cl****************@br*****.uk where you can also tell me of any local news or concerns. Thanks.
