|Committee Membership||Economy and Environment, Services|
I live in Newtown and I am delighted to have been co-opted onto Newtown & Llanllwchaiarn Town Council representing the West ward.
I take an active interest in local matters and want to work for the benefit of the local community to make life better for our residents.
Newtown is a great place to live, work, learn and play and I wanted to join the Town Council to work towards making it an even better place.
These are exciting times ahead for our town and I want to be part of it.
Date took Office – 25.7.2022 (The start of continuous service)

Your Council’s decisions are made at meetings of the council or its committees. Your Councillors have a duty to attend all meetings of the Council and meetings of the Committees of which they are members, unless an absence is approved by the meeting for a stated reason, for example a council duty elsewhere or ill-health.
Note that some councillors have been required to attend more meetings than others by reason, for example, of a shorter term of office or lesser number of committees to which elected, so the reader is advised to consider both the total number and the percentage when interpreting the attendance record.

However, this Council does require that all councillors undertake Code of Conduct training within six months of taking office and encourages all councillors to take advantage of training offered by organisations operating in the local council sector.
