Hello fellow Pirates
Yesterday I was successful in my co-option on to the St Athan Community Council. It was proposed to the Council in February and I was voted in at the March meeting.
St Athan is a place that matters a great deal to me. My business is there, my partner is in the middle of purchasing her first house there, my grandfather and other family members have lived there and were rather popular in the community.
It is becoming an increasingly sought after place to live and certainly to return to. Many of the residents went to the same schools as I did and consider it a good area. I also find my own tenants are returning to St Athan as their real "home".
I wanted this co-option to be as transparent as possible. I disclosed my party, my union, had a meeting with the other councillors where my skills, knowledge and aims were all brought out into the open.
