Having worked for central and local government Elizabeth believes in the importance of good public services.
As a Cardiff City Councillor, Elizabeth is a strong champion for local people. She is proud to have voted alongside all the Liberal Democrat councillors to save Whitchurch, Rhiwbina, Cathays, Rhydypenau, Roath, Radyr and Rumney libraries from the Labour Council closure proposals. She is currently fighting against proposals to reduce the frequency of black bin collections or the size of the bins.
She cares passionately about Cardiff and is pleased to be the first woman to be given the hereditary freedom of the city of Cardiff. However, any rights to graze her sheep in Heath Park have now ended!
Elizabeth believes strongly in Liberal Democrat values and is proud that it was the Liberal Party who first fought against social injustice. She started campaigning for the party when a teenager in the 1983 General Election by canvassing in Whitchurch and Rhiwbina villages.
