My pledges if elected as Welsh Labour's first ever deputy leader

  • Visit all parts of Wales, with my trademark red gazebo, to listen to members and make sure their views are taken into account.
  • Make sure dignity and respect is our guiding principle in the Labour movement across Wales. We need our party to be a safe haven for staff and volunteers, especially women.
  • Make members' voices heard loud and clear on OMOV (One Member, One Vote). I will call a special democracy conference to discuss ways to make the party fair, open and representative. I believe this can only strengthen the party and make us more able to fight for the communities which need Labour.
  • Give councillors a strong voice in the party by establishing a Welsh councillor network that will provide help and support to councillors. Establish a mechanism to encourage more women, young people and members from all communities to stand as council candidates.
  • Stand up for public services and public service workers. Kick-start a joint campaign with the trade unions to confront the UK government's unfair pay policy and break the grip of austerity.
  • Do everything I can to oppose a chaotic car crash Brexit and tackle the Tories on their reckless Brexit policies.
  • Shine a light on housing inequality and unfairness and campaign for change. Housing policy is devolved in Wales. We need to fix this crisis affecting our young people and families.
  • Campaign to make Wales a greener country.
