Anita Davies believe we need a local Assembly Member who understands the needs of the ogmore constituency and who is prepared to stand up and fight for our best interests. I have lived in the community for most of my life. I am seeking to represent, I use some of the local services such as the Llangeinor community garden, public transport. My parents, family and friends use the local health services and my nieces and nephews go to the local schools.
Labour have taken the ogmore constituency for granted for far too long, they have tried to close schools and closed much needed community facilities. I am disappointed that despite having the power since last May and despite pressure from the Liberal Democrats, the Welsh Labour Government have not cut business rates for local business.
