I’m pleased to announce that I will be standing for election in the Oldcastle Ward for Bridgend County Borough Council and Bridgend Town Council in the coming elections on May 4th 2017 as an Independent Candidate, supported by Change for Bridgend.
I moved to Bridgend from Cardiff with my family at a young age and had the benefit of growing up in Litchard. I spent my childhood using the leisure facilities, local attractions and shops Bridgend had to offer. I moved to The Vale some years ago but returned to Bridgend for my daughter to be able to attend the fantastic schools within our Ward.
My family and I have successfully run a business in the Oldcastle Ward since 1996 and over these years we have witnessed the sad demise of a once thriving Market Town.
I strongly believe that Party Politics have no place in the running of our Town. If you don’t agree with this statement, take a look at what’s happened to the Town over the past 25 years. Decisions should be made on the basis of the best outcome for the Town, not on some party dogma.
Whilst I’m not a political person, I have strong skills in budgets, evidence based assessments, problem solving, implementing processes with continual review for success and achieving targets on time and within budget. These attributes coupled with excellent interpersonal skills and links to Bridgend itself, would allow me to maximise my commitment to restore Bridgend to its former glory days.
