IMG_9505Llanelli Constituency Labour Party are delighted to announce the selection of Lee Waters as the Labour candidate to contest the Llanelli Constituency seat at the next Assembly elections in May 2016, when the current AM Keith Davies will be retiring. Lee, who was born and  brought up locally, attending Amman Valley Comprehensive School, brings with him a wealth of experience in the voluntary sector and the media, and a real determination to bring opportunities and improvements to people’s lives here in the Llanelli constituency.

Commenting on Lee’s selection,  Llanelli MP NIa Griffith said,

“I am absolutely delighted that Lee Waters has been selected as our Labour candidate for the Assembly elections. He has a real passion for the Llanelli constituency area, and wants to use his energy and influence to increase the range of jobs and opportunities on offer here, so that Llanelli is an area our ambitious young people want to stay in, not move away from. He has already got down to work, and has gathered support from hundreds of people in his campaign to force the Plaid County Council to abandon madcap plans for yet more retail development out at Trostre which would have a devastating effect on Llanelli town centre. I am really looking forward to working with Lee over the coming months to get the very best for the people of the whole of the Llanelli area.”
