Aaron Wynne: Plaid Cymru's Senedd candidiate for Aberconwy

Meet the councillor aiming to become Wales' youngest Member of the Welsh Parliament at the 2021 Senedd elections.

In 2017, Plaid Cymru's Aaron Wynne was elected to represent his hometown Llanrwst, on Conwy County Borough Council.

He became Wales' youngest county councillor and is now seeking to win the Aberconwy constituency and take the seat from the Tories.

Current Tory Aberconwy Senedd Member, Janet Finch-Saunders only commands a majority of 750 votes, with Plaid Cymru in a very close second place.

Cllr Wynne, 24, said;

"Wales' Parliament needs members with a broad range of age and experience.

"Just like other people in Aberconwy, I'm getting impatient for change. Whether it's poverty levels, a health board in special measures or a housing system that's out of control, things need to change.

"Covid-19 has only amplified these issues and highlighted that our current politicians aren't up for the job."

On leaving Ysgol Bro Gwydir and Dyffryn Conwy, he freelanced as a web-designer, before moving on to politics.

He was elected to represent Llanrwst on Conwy Council at 20.

"One of my ambitions is to have a national housing revolution. Young families in Conwy are having to move out of county for work and to find somewhere to live.

"We need to build more social housing, and find other creative ways of increasing social homes, so that families can remain living local.

"I may only be 24, but I have lived in Conwy county all my life. As a young person who want to remain living and working here, I know how difficult that is."
