Why you would like to become the Councillor for Cathays

I would like to become a Councillor for Cathays because having moved back to the City Centre, just under 4 years ago, having retired from the Health and Safety Executive, I feel, we live in a wonderful city and I would like to be a part of the Labour team that maintains and improves the standard of services we require to keep this City the best. I would feel it an honour to represent Cathays dealing with the constituents identified issues and helping to find solutions.

I feel that now I have retired I have the political principles, life experience, the time, energy and enthusiasm to represent the people of Cathays as a member of the Cathays team

Other Skills/Achievements

  • Experience of managing national projects, conferences and campaigns, chairing and office holding in committees, strategic planning and commissioning, inter-agency working, voluntary and community work.
  • Able to Communicate at all levels, work within a team, listen, debate, agree solutions and evaluate success. and, I think, successfully brought up 3 children and have the pleasure of singing with Cardiff Blues Choir (Cor y Gleision).
