The next Senedd elections are taking place in May 2021. In preparation, Labour Party members across the region will have the opportunity to determine whether to reselect me as one of your Mid and West Wales regional list candidates for that election in a process known as a ‘trigger ballot’.
I would be very grateful if you would grant me the honour to represent you again as it has been an incredible privilege to serve as your representative for Mid & West Wales since 2016. This has been a very turbulent period for politics and our society, and I would like to continue to focus my efforts in the next few months on keeping you and Wales safe.
As an experienced politician and campaigner, I understand that in our movement, our unity is our strength. When we are united, we win together for our Party and our communities.
Despite the challenges of Brexit and Covid-19, working with my team, the local Constituency Labour Party and members, I hope that you will agree that we have achieved a great deal together, sharing our values and working to make Mid and West Wales a better place to live and work. I have highlighted some of my personal political and campaign highlights over the last term in my accompanying leaflet for your consideration.
Your vote for me in the trigger ballot is an endorsement of our hard work. Now, more than ever, we need to retain our Welsh Labour Government against the threat of Plaid’s nationalism and the devastation that could be wreaked on our communities if the Tories win big in Wales.
Welsh Labour has shielded our people and communities from the worst of the Tories’ austerity agenda. I am proud to have helped deliver our Socialist agenda for the many, not the few and look forward to building on our manifesto commitments for a fairer future built on the Welsh Labour Difference in Wales.
