Plaid Cymru candidate for the Vale of Clwyd
Mair Rowlands is 27 years old and is originally from Cardiff although she has lived in North Wales for many years now. She studied Welsh and Theology at Bangor University before being elected as the Welsh Student President there for two years. She now works as a Sustainable Development Officer at the University where she assists Bangor University to develop opportunities to operate sustainably. Mair is a County Councillor for Plaid Cymru and a Cabinet Member for Children Young People and Leisure.
Her father is originally from Denbigh and she still has close contacts with the Vale of Clwyd area. Most recently, Mair has been involved with the campaign against the downgrading of maternity services at Glan Clwyd Hospital, and the campaign to save Dolwen care home in Denbigh. Mair and the local Plaid Councillors have also campaigned against the huge housing development in Bodelwyddan, they want to see a new, simpler Planning system which serves local communities.
Mair is standing in this election because she wants to work to create a better future for Wales and the Vale of Clwyd, we need a new and strong voice for the Vale of Clwyd, to ensure that we have better health services, better paid work and someone who will defend public services and fight for a better future for our young people.
