PLAID CYMRU PENARTH VICE-CHAIR SETS OUT HIS STALL FOR MAY 4TH ELECTIONS

Plaid Cymru candidate Aled Roberts sets out his stall on video for the local council elections on May 4th .

Plaid Cymru Penarth’s Vice chairman Aled Thomas has set out his stall on video for the local council elections on May 4th where he’s standing for election in the St Augustine’s Ward .

Plaid Cymru’s Penarth branch of Vice chairman, Aled Thomas,  has today issued an on-line  ‘video manifesto’ in his campaign for the St Augustine’s Ward of Penarth – where he’s standing alongside fellow party-member and well-known local environmental campaigner Anne Greagsby for election to the Vale of Glamorgan Council .

The election is on May 4th this year and the video setting out the key points of his campaign can be seen on   http://tinyurl.com/zrtspj5 .

Meanwhile there is speculation – as yet wholly unconfirmed – that some current Penarth Labour councillors are being shuffled to stand for different wards from those which they currently represent –  prior to May’s elections.

One – as yet unconfirmed –  report is that veteran Vale Councillor Cllr Janice Birch (Labour Stanwell) may be considering retiring and that Cllr Lis Burnett (now Labour St Augustines) may be nominated to contest Cllr Birch’s long-held Vale seat in the Stanwell Ward in the May 4th elections.

Throughout her long  career in local government Cllr Birch has invariably attracted a large vote. She also serves as a Penarth Town Councillor and was Mayor of Penarth in 1981-82 and Deputy Mayor of the Vale of Glamorgan Council in 2012.

The Labour Party has said only that it will be issuing a full list of candidates for the Vale of Glamorgan Council and Penarth Town Council elections in due course and has no further comment.

Meanwhile the Conservative Party is due to select its candidates to stand for election to Penarth Town Council before the end of this month. The party has already selected its candidates for the Vale Council. (See PDN http://tinyurl.com/jkxpd73 )

  1. Good grief. It’s still 4 months before the elections. Don’t these political people realise that normal people are sick and tired of almost continual elections or referendums with the associated electioneering. Not only do we have to put up with their antics in the UK but elsewhere as well.

    I occidentally caught a bit of the London parliament on the TV the other day. Their behaviour seemed appalling to me and a dreadful example to young people. Why can’t they be respectful to those speaking and allow those with differing views to speak uninterrupted?

    I’ve had more than enough.

    One thing I’ll bet she’ll want to change is the “West House” sign itself.
    It will become “Tŷ Orllewin” in flashing red and green letters, six foot high.
    (environmentally powered by waste methane gas, but off course)

    Yes, having all correspondence sent out in two languages, when everyone speaks English is another Plaid environmental triumph.

  3. Jean Thomas says:

    Surely, it is our choice whether we wish to speak Welsh or English. If we want outside people to come to our town then the English version should come first. On that note why do we waste so much paper sending out English and Welsh versions of everything; can’t we ask people which they prefer and only send that. There you are council bods that would save some money – just for a start. I am sure if you asked the public they would give the council some very good suggestions for saving even more money.
