As a firm believer that our historic environment is an important part of who we are, I’ve been fighting hard with local residents to protect, not only our open spaces and parklands, such as Hailey Park and the Maindy Velodrome in Cathays, but local buildings which are extremely important to us.
I'm eager to do all that I can to make sure that children living in South Wales benefit from a first-class education. This not only means challenging and holding to account the Welsh Government for any decisions it might make on education, but it also means holding to account local councils.
As an opposition member of the Welsh Parliament, one of my key roles is to challenge and hold to account the Welsh Government, and over the previous year, I’d like to think that I have done this by highlighting its record on highway investment and infrastructure.
There has been a lot of coverage in the media about the proposed expansion of the Welsh Parliament from 60 members to 96. There are also plans to get rid of constituencies and create ‘super regions’, which will then elect their representatives along political party lines.
