Bristol Youth Mayors
The council’s Youth Select Committee has voted in two new Youth Mayors who will now act as advisors to the Mayor
on youth issues.
Rondene Vassell, aged 17 and James Gibson, 15, replace outgoing Youth Mayors Isobel Trout and Ramal Royal, who have completed their one year term of office.
Rondene, who attends Clifton College, said: “It’s been a dream of mine to be a Youth Mayor for over a year now and to finally achieve that dream feels surreal. I’d like to see new opportunities arise for young people within Bristol.”
James, a student at John Cabot Academy in Kingswood said: “I feel very honoured to be able to continue a process that helps connect disadvantaged people with the political process. My interests include tackling poverty.”
