Seeing the devastating effects of Tory cuts,

0:00:060:00:09

with a total lack of opposition from Labour, it made me really angry.

0:00:090:00:13

And then I thought, why not stand and make a difference locally?

0:00:130:00:17

I'm a mother of three young children and I'm standing for Plaid

0:00:170:00:20

because I know that Plaid will look after my children's future.

0:00:200:00:25

Plaid Cymru is a grassroots movement.

0:00:250:00:26

It works tirelessly to ensure a better,

0:00:260:00:28

more prosperous future for Wales.

0:00:280:00:31

And that's why I and so many young people are standing this year,

0:00:310:00:34

because we wholeheartedly believe that Plaid Cymru is the only

0:00:340:00:36

party that has always, does always and will always,

0:00:360:00:40

put the future of Wales, its people and the next generation

0:00:400:00:43

above all else.

0:00:430:00:44

I'm standing as a Plaid Cymru candidate,

0:00:440:00:46

Plaid Cymru because I feel it's for everyone,

0:00:460:00:48

everyone of every age, every background

0:00:480:00:50

and, of course, every sex.

0:00:500:00:52

I think it's really important that we get a cross-party,

0:00:520:00:55

so that every person can be represented fairly.

0:00:550:00:57

People are sick and tired of councillors, other parties,

0:00:570:01:01

coming into our communities, promising the world,

0:01:010:01:05

they get elected but don't do nothing and all that promise

0:01:050:01:07

is just evaporated into hot air.

0:01:070:01:09

What they need is councillors coming into the community, listening

0:01:090:01:14

to the community and actually doing, delivering for the communities.

0:01:140:01:18

I'm voting Plaid Cymru on May 4 to protect Gwynedd from the

0:01:450:01:49

harsh Tory cuts from the Government and also from the

0:01:490:01:51

unsympathetic London Labour Party in Cardiff.

0:01:510:01:54

I'm voting Plaid because I feel they're the party that

0:01:540:01:57

listens and they're all about inclusivity and diversity.

0:01:570:02:00

I've had enough of cuts to public services that mean that they

0:02:000:02:03

can barely function. I've had enough of the most vulnerable people

0:02:030:02:06

within our community being blamed for these cuts.

0:02:060:02:09

I'm standing for Plaid Cymru because I want rural voices to be heard.

0:02:090:02:13

In Plaid-led councils, we have a track record of strong and

0:02:130:02:17

responsible leadership in very challenging times.

0:02:170:02:21

This is my community,

0:02:210:02:22

these are my people, and here is where I want to make a difference.

0:02:220:02:26

We need to build more affordable and social housing, so that

0:02:260:02:30

everybody has the opportunity of a decent home to live in.

0:02:300:02:34

I've been a member of Plaid Cymru all my life and I believe

0:02:340:02:38

that they are the only party that can look after our services and our communities.

0:02:380:02:43

People in my community are fed up with seeing investment

0:02:430:02:46

concentrated elsewhere time after time. We deserve our fair share.

0:02:460:02:51

Strong local government is essential in counteracting poor

0:02:510:02:54

policies being handed down from central government.

0:02:540:02:57

Plaid Cymru is your local party.

0:02:590:03:02

Plaid Cymru people are your people.

0:03:020:03:05

On May 4, send a clear message to the governments in both

0:03:050:03:09

London and Cardiff that you will no longer be ignored.

0:03:090:03:13

Vote Plaid Cymru.

0:03:130:03:16

Let's stand together, let's make our voices heard.

0:03:170:03:20

Politicians are not all the same.

0:03:200:03:22

Vote Plaid to see the difference.

0:03:220:03:25

I believe that Plaid Cymru is the party of strong communities.

0:03:250:03:28

Plaid Cymru, your local party.

0:03:280:03:30

There is an alternative and it's called Plaid Cymru,

0:03:300:03:34

the Party of Wales.
