I am pleased to announce my candidacy for the Newcastle Ward in the upcoming local authority election as an Independent Candidate, with the support of Change for Bridgend. I have represented the Newcastle Ward on BCBC for four years between 2008 and 2012. I have also been a Councillor on Bridgend Town Council representing my wards for the past 33 years. I have also been a school governor on both Brynteg and Bryntirion Comprehensive schools over many years.
My local knowledge of Bridgend areas is probably unique as far as local councillors are concerned.
It is high time that the outdated dogma of local councils at all levels is swept away in favour of the brand new attitude and agenda focused on local people and the needs of their communities. I have been steadfast over four decades of Bridgend service and look forward to your support once again on Thursday the 4th of May.
