Why vote for Keith?

I’m standing on behalf of Plaid Cymru in the Llansantffraed ward to make a difference in the community.

Originally from Cribyn, I've lived with my family in the village of Nebo since 2003. I strongly believe in the ethos of living in the community of your choice. I would like to see communities shape their own futures and would like to work with you to bring new ideas to reality which will improve our local area and community.

Having worked in the private, public and third sectors, I believe I have experience to make a difference for you, the people of Llansantffraed. Former bank manager with NatWest in the area and former Head of Commercial Services at Coleg Ceredigion. I'm now making a difference to the rural area in my role as Rural Housing Enabler. The experience of working with the public sector, in my role as Chair of Cynnal y Cardi and Chair of the Ceredigion Governors Forum, has given me invaluable experiences.
