The Hengoed ward, of which I am a Carmarthenshire County Councillor and Llanelli Rural Councillor, will hold a by-election on Thursday 19th February 2015 , following the sad death in December of my fellow councillor George Edwards. Hengoed is a big ward and supplies two councillors to Carmarthenshire County Council and four councillors to Llanelli Rural Council.
Wynford Samuel is standing for People First and I ask you to support Wynford and vote for him. I need an ally to stand with me in the local councils. In these times of cuts we need to fight hard for this ward and take care of our facilities and vulnerable residents.
In the County Council, Welsh Government Auditors have found that senior councillors authorised unlawful payments. We need to ensure that no more money goes astray and every penny is properly spent for the public good. The Welsh Local Government Association has investigated Carmarthenshire County Council and found it wanting. Wynford is not the sort of man to put up with secret pay rises, hiding problems and wasting money.
This is what Wynford has to say:-
Please vote for me on February 19th.
