Many people have asked me why I want to be our new MP.
My answer is simple – because I’m passionate about tackling injustice and helping people get the best chance for a good life.
Growing up in Wrexham, my Mum and Dad taught me the value of public service from the day I was born and were very active in the community.
They drove me to work hard and get the best education I could. I graduated from Cardiff University then trained to become a social worker. For the last 27 years, I’ve been working to protect vulnerable children at home and abroad.
I live in Powys, just outside Welshpool, with my husband Patrick.
Now I’m running to be Brecon and Radnorshire's new MP because I believe we deserve better from our politicians and the Westminster Government. I want to stand up for everyone in our community that feels let down by those in power.
Around Powys we are seeing ordinary families being driven to foodbanks by crippling failures in the Conservative Government’s universal credit scheme. We have small businesses and farmers living in fear at the damage Conservative plans will do to their livelihoods.
We have residents who have lost vital community facilities like Post Offices, banks, shops and lack decent public transport. Living here in Powys, I know how important it is we have an MP who understands rural issues.
It’s time we had a strong voice in Westminster who will fight for our local communities.
We need an MP who will work to deliver a better life for you and your family. I have a positive plan to do just that and with your support, I can deliver it.
MY POSITIVE PLAN
for Brecon and Radnorshire
✔ Back our NHS and improve social care;
✔ Oppose Conservative cuts;
✔ Protect vital rural services;
✔ Fix our broken politics;
✔ Stand up for Welsh farmers and local jobs.
Back Jane to win
Say you'll vote for Jane to be our next MP
