Why vote for Richard?

"I am an organic dairy farmer on the outskirts of Cardigan and I have been a Cardigan Town Councillor since 2012.

In my mayoral year I established the 'Carnifal Aberteifi' group which has been responsible for restarting Cardigan Carnival and we also installed the town's welcome lights. They group are also now in charge of the Christmas lights display and recently took over the running of the street market on fair day. Being a Cardi born and bred, I am passionate about my home town and will do my upmost to ensure that Cardigan is a busy, thriving town.

I am a determined person that is honest and fair and I am willing to work diligently on behalf of the residents of Mwldan ward. I'd be grateful for your support on 5 May."
