MY KEY ISSUES ARE:
Concerns about a biomass incinerator
Dumping of nuclear waste
The future of Welsh medium education
Recently I felt voiceless and powerless when the local council voted in favour of permitting a biomass incinerator. When I found out about all of the risks that the incinerator would cause to the health of young people, I felt a desire to make a difference. I am very concerned about our environment and people’s health. It is therefore necessary to challenge the Welsh Government’s decision to permit the dumping of nuclear waste from England off the coast where we will be swimming.
I want to represent young people about their problems and I'm keen to have a say in the decision regarding the medium of the new primary school at Barry Waterfront. This is a huge decision for the future of the Welsh language and the education of our young people. I would hold meetings and maintain an online presence in order to hear the views of the constituency's young people. I will also find out what matters to young people by consulting thoroughly with them, and being reasonable and consistent when representing them. I have become used to discussing and debating, as well as listening, by participating in the school debate club, and I would like to have the opportunity to represent my peers and make a difference.
