A new generation for a new challenge
A new generation of young activists (as well as Marc Jones!) is taking up the Plaid Cymru mantle in Wrecsam and Flintshire. Mabon ap Gwynfor (Clwyd South), Shane Brennan (Alyn and Deeside), Carrie Harper (Delyn) and Marc Jones (Wrecsam) are campaigning on a radical manifesto that will revitalise the north-east and challenge the London parties' cosy consensus.
We want to create the infrastructure to rebuild the economy, creating 7,000 jobs and 4,000 apprenticeships in our area.
We want to tackle head-on the national scandal of one in four adults in Wales having a reading age of 11 or under - no child should leave primary school unable to read and count to the level expected.
We want Wales to have control over its own criminal justice system.
