Candidate for Llanelli
Cen left comprehensive school at 16 and worked in a hotel and shop before returning to education and gaining a BTec National Diploma. After nearly 20 years working in the public sector, becoming the leader of a technical support team while also studying history part-time with the Open University and raising a family, he joined the Liberal Democrats in 2010. He has spent many years involved with amateur operatic societies around South Wales, and is a regular attendee at rock concerts and a keen rugby supporter.
Cen said, “In government and the Welsh Assembly the Liberal Democrats have a fantastic record of delivery. In Llanelli 27,300 people have had an income tax cut, with 4,000 taken out of income tax altogether. The link between pensions and earnings has been restored and there has been a record rise in the state pension. Millions of pounds have been given to schools across Carmarthenshire through the Pupil Premium. As well as working hard to sort out the financial mess left by the last Labour government, the Lib Dems have held the Tories back from trampling over our human rights, employment rights and civil liberties.
"For too long Welsh politics has been blighted by divisiveness and complacency, with the interests of particular groups or political parties placed above those of constituents. I believe that everyone deserves a fair opportunity in life in a strong economy that works for the whole of society, whatever their background. The people of Llanelli deserve an elected representative who will put their interests above everything else, and who will work hard to support the whole community all year round.”
