Emily Smith grew up locally, attending Dunmore, John Mason and Abingdon College.
She is married with two young children and is a Vale District Councillor. Emily has 14 years’ professional experience in the voluntary and public sector, leading teams and working with schools, colleges, housing providers and others to support young people into employment and training.
Emily has seen first-hand how Tory cuts to education, health and transport are impacting on our community – a situation Brexit is likely to make worse.
I am currently exploring different ways for the council to provide affordable homes, cycle access, air quality and leisure facilities for young people.
