Thank You One and All.

Dear Blogger /s.

As you can imagine I was absolutely delighted when the results came in for the seat of Aberconwy. It is such an honour and privilege to be the Welsh Assembly Member for Aberconwy  of which this is a first for the Welsh Conservatives and I would  like to take this opportunity to offer my most grateful thanks to all those who supported our campaign and to the many residents who very warmly greeted us on the doorsteps and in particular for the offer of copious amounts of tea and coffee etc. My grateful thanks must also go to my fantastic and hardworking Campaign team to include My Agent Cllr Garry Burchett and Campaign Manager Frank Bradfield. Finally, I would like to express my commiserations to the other candidates, Mr Iwan Hughes, Eifion Wyn Williams and my Councillor Colleague Mike Priestley, as all in all we did get along quite well over the time of the campaign.

Diolch yn Fawr.

Thank You.

Thursday May 5th Welsh Assembly Elections.

On 5th May, I will be asking you to consider supporting me to represent you in The Welsh Assembly.
Labour has been in power in Wales, either on its own or in coalition, since the Assembly was set up in 1999 and has been in coalition with Plaid Cymru since 2007. While both parties promised much, many people have been telling me how disappointed they have been.

Wales is now the poorest country in the United Kingdom. More than £600 less is spent each year on a child's education in Wales than in England. Wales now has the highest rate of economically inactive people of any part of the UK.
Despite Labour and Plaid Cymru promises, wards and services are still being taken away from Llandudno Hospital and local schools continue to be threatened with closure. Despite Plaid Cymru's rhetoric, of bringing investment to North Wales, Plaid Ministers presided over the closure of the Dolgarrog Aluminium works.

At the recent General Election, Aberconwy voted for change by electing Guto Bebb as your local MP. Now we need change in the Welsh Assembly to deliver improvements to essential services in Aberconwy.
Real changes require tough decisions and that is why the Welsh Conservatives are the only party committed to protecting the Welsh NHS budget to ensure that vital local services are funded and provided. Welsh Conservatives are also committed to abolishing business rates for the majority of small businesses and raising standards in our schools so we can correct their under-performance compared to schools in the rest of the UK.

I can assure you that if you trust me with your vote on 5th May I will always stand up to represent you and ensure that your voice is heard in Cardiff Bay. Together we can make the change that Wales needs.

Hain under fire over criticism of BBC’s wedding coverage - Wales News - News from @walesonline

Hain under fire over criticism of BBC’s wedding coverage - Wales News - News from @walesonline

Good to see that David Jones M.P  succeeded in shaming Mr Hain into tweeting a positive message about the Royal Wedding. It was a wonderful day and will be remembered by many for years to come. To politicise it in this way is wrong and he should at the very least apologise.

L.D.P Consultation.

The consultation for the L.D. P deposit plan has now closed and from the feedback that I have received over the past few weeks, it is obvious that many residents feel quite let down by the whole process. I attended a meeting in Dwygyfylchi recently on a Sunday afternoon and there were over 250 people in attendance.  Some of the sites mentioned could actually have C.P.O 's enforced and some sites have been put forward without the landowners knowledge according to the presentation . This is not an acceptable way of engaging with the local community and again there is simply not the need for the actual numbers proposed. We will be calling a special Council meeting to discuss these figures and sites earlier than the proposed timetable of July and it is hoped that some of the leaders of the various community groups will be invited to attend.  I do hope though that party politics will be kept out of any future deliberations because this is probably the most significant policy matter that will be dealt with by C.C.B.C for many years.

I will also be calling on the new W.A.G  for a pause and review on the Aberconwy L.D.P in it's entirety, so that there is a more considered housing quota, which is based on clear evidence as opposed to the current guesstimates.

Will keep you updated with the progress on this.
