About Jo

Jo is passionate about education and is a keen advocate of the new Welsh curriculum. She is keen to encourage local government to take full advantage of the opportunities that this new curriculum presents. Jo has a particular focus on supporting increased nursery provision and wrap-around-care, as well getting children access to special educational needs provision where required. She believes that both education and social care need more funding to focus on early intervention.  Prevention, not cure, leads to improved wellbeing for everyone in society, and also costs the tax-payer less in the long term.

Jo takes a proactive approach to planning, and has fought vigorously to ensure that the many new housing developments springing up across the region have appropriate school, health and transport infrastructure in place before they are built, rather than allowing existing services to be overloaded.

Jo is a keen environmentalist, and successfully persuaded Monmouthshire County Council to make a cross-party declaration of a council-wide climate emergency. She believes that swift action on climate change is not just necessary to secure a safe and prosperous planet for future generations, but also represents an opportunity for growth in new skills, business, jobs and innovation across Wales.
