I have lived in Newtown for over 20 years and I am pleased to have served on the Town Council since November 2014. In May 2017 I was also elected to serve Newtown Central on Powys County Council. Newtown Central covers Trehafren, Vaynor, Pavillion Court and the Llanidloes Road area.
I believe that the Town Council has an important role in bringing people together to preserve and improve local life. Small towns like ours suffer from a challenging retail and business environment - we must learn to adapt and celebrate our uniqueness.
The Town Council is taking on new services and as the largest town in Powys is well equipped to provide more. I will work to tackle the challenges that these changes bring and to serve Newtown and the area of the town I represent.
