It has just been announced that Karen Sinclair, Assembly Member for South Clwyd will be standing down from the Assembly in 2011. Ms Sinclair has been ill with cancer since May 2008. She was first elected in 1999 and was Business Manager from 2003 to 2005. Ms Sinclair won in 2007 with 35.1% of the vote compared to John Bell's 29.3% and Plaid Cymru on 20%. A three way race in an Assembly election. Wonder who will be parachuted in to South Clwyd by Labour this time?
Ms Sinclair is the seventh Assembly Member to announce that they will be standing down in 2011.
