Cabinet role for Anna
Published on: 22 Dec 2017
HILLFIELDS Councillor Anna Keen has been made Bristol's cabinet councillor for education.
It follows Mayor Marvin Rees's decision to end cross-party rule by dropping the two non-Labour members, Tory Claire Hiscott and the Green Party's Fi Hance.
Councillor Keen, a teacher, joins two other Fishponds cabinet members, Craig Cheney, who is deputy mayor with responsibility for finance, and Mhairi Threlfall, who recently took on the transport brief.
She said: "I want to work with schools so that the children of Bristol can flourish in an environment of equality and inclusion. I can promise parents, children, teachers, and all others in the education and skills sector that I will listen."
Cllr Keen will continue to lead on the Feeding Bristol project.
