Electoral Ward: Castle

I am a single-mother of three and grandmother to five wonderful grandchildren. I was elected in 2004 and it has always been my focus to represent our residents in a fair and loyal manner.

I have been a champion against domestic abuse and a champion for diversity for the City and County of Swansea.

Our Ward is diverse and colourful. Some parts just survive in poverty, others are affluent.

Our mission is that everyone has the right to access services.

As time has moved on so has the political climate. We have been in austerity for six years.

The change has driven us as a council to search for better ways of delivering our services. Swansea is living up to the challenge with more consultation and communications reaching more individuals and gathering their ideas. These will all be fed-back into our Labour Manifesto for the City over the next term.

I love meeting residents old and new, and many have become friends.

My everyday work is about our residents and their quality of life:  Housing, street cleansing, dog poo and rubbish are still high on the list.

We will always listen to our residents’ concerns and always take action on their behalf.
