Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader and Lead Mid and West Candidate, Jane Dodds
Jane was born and raised in Wrexham in a Welsh-speaking family that she credits as raising her to appreciate value of public service and were very active in our community. Jane attended Ysgol Morgan Llwyd and graduated from Cardiff University before training to become a social worker.
For the next 27 years she worked as a Child Protective Social Worker, working to protect vulnerable children at home and abroad. After living in Welshpool for a number of years, Jane moved to Hay-on-Wye with her husband Patrick in 2019 and am so passionate about supporting our many diverse communities across Powys and Mid and West Wales.
As the top Welsh Liberal Democrat candidate for the Mid and West Wales region in the Senedd, Jane wants to continue to stand up to demand better for our region and put the recovery first as we enter a post COVID world. She wants to stand up for everyone in our community that feels let down by those in power.
Around Powys, we are seeing ordinary families being driven to foodbanks by crippling failures in the Conservative Government’s Universal Credit scheme. We have small businesses and farmers living in fear at the damage Conservative plans will do to their livelihoods.
We have residents who have lost vital community facilities like Post Offices, banks, shops and lack decent public transport. Living in Powys, Jane knows how important it is that we have Senedd members who stands up for the unique issues affecting our rural communities.
That is why Jane is fighting to make sure the voice of our local communities is heard in Cardiff Bay.
Working with Kirsty Williams our strong team of Powys Councillors and campaigners, Jane is fighting to ensure that we build a fairer, greener society which improves the lives of you and your family.
With your continued support, we can achieve it.
