Candidates For Mid & West Wales
The below candidates are standing for election in the Welsh Parliament Elections in 2021 for Mid & West Wales
Emily is a Powys County Councillor, a mother of two boys, board member and charity executive. Emily has spent her life working life bringing people and organisations together on issues of environmental and social justice, mostly in the food and farming sectors.
Tomos is a current Geography student who originally comes from Anglesey. He moved to Ceredigion in 2019 to study where he has been active within the local Green Party helping with the campaign in the 2019 General Election in Ceredigion. He joined the party in 2018 in the belief that we need stronger environmental protections for the people of Wales and a different perspective in the Senedd, one that champions wellbeing over profit and one that is consistent on seeking a more sustainable and progressive future for Wales. He’s standing for election this year because he feels that there needs to be more youth representation within the Welsh Parliament as he feels that the Welsh Parliament at times has proven itself to be incredibly disconnected from the reality that young people and students face, especially when looking at the A-Level Crisis this year and its attitudes towards assessments in schools over the years. Green Rhetoric without Green Action is just simply not good enough for Tomos and it’s this that drives his belief that a Green is desperately needed in the Welsh Parliament as he believes that a Green representative will push hard for those Green Policies and that Green, long-term thinking on a national level which can really make better policies that promote social justice, equality and environmental justice for not just the generations now but also the generations to come, something he feels we currently don’t have in the Welsh Parliament. His simple message is Vote Green.
I am delighted to have been duly selected as a candidate for the Welsh Senedd elections to be held next May and look forward to working with Emily, Tomos and Marc to ensure that Mid and West Wales becomes the place where Green Party history in Wales is made with the election of a regional member for the Greens. It is my hope, although this will have to be tempered by circumstance due to the spread of Covid-19, to visit every corner of this region, be it Blaenau Ffestinog in the north, long associated with its history of slate mining where coronavirus has hit the tourism sector hard, to Presteigne on the English border where local shops have been struggling to survive, to St. David's in the west, the smallest city in the entire United Kingdom and Llanelli in the south, home of the famous "Sospan Fach" and instead of most politicians, LISTEN to your concerns and act on them.
