This month two community council elections were called in Clwyd South, one for the Groes ward of Pen Y Cae and one for Pant ward of Rhos. The closing date for nominations was today and Labour are proud to have put two excellent candidates forward.
In Pen Y Cae, Labour member Nick Claffey was the only nomination put forward. Well known throughout the community for his deep compassion for the homeless and selfless and vital help he affords them, Nick is also an excellent campaigner and kick started the campaign that brought about the return of the bus route through the Afoneitha Estate last summer following a very successful petition. As the only nomination Nick, who will now be elected unopposed said, “I can’t wait to work alongside the other 15 Community Councillors on our Community Council to represent the people of Pen-Y-Cae. I am passionate about where I live and I will do my absolute best for all of you. For me this is a very proud moment.”
Our other Labour candidate is Beth Wright, who will be standing for election to Rhos Community council. Acting as the Welsh language officer on our CLP Executive Committee, Beth brings a lot of passion for her heritage, “I have lived in the ward for over 30 years and feel passionate about [our] area, its community and culture. I would be proud to be elected as the representative and look forward to chatting with as many people as I can during the campaign.”
The election for Pant ward will take place on 22nd February.
