Jane Dodds


Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats

My name is Jane Dodds and I am the Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats.

Since my election in 2017, I've worked hard to reinvigorate our party, give us a new sense of purpose and have us lead the fight on Brexit, Climate Change, Poverty and Loneliness.

I want to see us change Wales.

We simply cannot continue on with more of the same.

I offer a bold and markedly different alternative vision for Wales, one build on the principles of the social contract, the welfare state and embracing new ideas and technologies.

Let me tell you a little bit more about my vision...

My vision for Wales

Wales needs a new way of living. That means we need to be caring and compassionate and that everyone has the opportunity to prosper and better their lives.

My vision for Wales is that we work with our neighbours, not against them.

By working together as part of a bigger team - in the United Kingdom and in Europe we can break the cycle of deeply ingrained poverty in our communities, meaningfully tackle climate change, and help everyone to live healthier and freer lives.

I want us to put social justice at the heart of everything we do, ensure are at the forefront of the fight to build a green economy, and we exceed our targets to tackle climate change in Wales.

A key part of this vision is that we remain in the European Union. Our party was the first party to call for a for a People's Vote and have been campaigning for one ever since.

I think we also need to look at ways we can do things differently and really shake things up. That's why I want to see us commit to a pilot on Universal Basic Income here in Wales so we can see if such a radical change could benefit people right across Wales.

If you believe in this vision for Wales and want an alternative to the uncaring Conservatives, Corbyn's Labour and the divisive nationalism of Plaid Cymru, then join us.

We simply don’t have any time to lose.

Thank you,

Jane Dodds,
Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats
