Plaid Cymru candidate for Newport East
Tony Salkeld is a single parent who was born and raised and still lives in Newport.
Tony has previously served in the Armed Forces, and is presently employed as an Office Manager by Jocelyn Davies AM
If elected as the AM for the area Tony will work with local businesses to boost employment opportunities in the area and secure new investment in local communities and in the City Centre. He believes that Plaid Cymru’s vision of a taxation system that encourages and supports business growth, with more small businesses helped with or exempt from business rates, can help achieve this.
He will also work with Schools, and Further Education establishments, alongside teachers and parents to improve educational standards and skills so that local young people have the abilities they need to secure well-paid, highly skilled work.
Outside politics and work, Tony’s interests include hill walking, and his two border collies.
