So having moved to Wales this year, my rather chaotic year has meant that I am somewhat worried that I simply feel very unprepared for the Welsh Labour leadership contest. With the contest officially open and there being 3 contenders: Mark Drakeford, Vaughan Gething and Eluned Morgan, we are now in a one member one vote situation. The Ballot will be in November, so I have a month to make a decision.
I think I need to determine what I want out of a welsh leader, and straight off the top of my head I want someone who can drive party unity, look strongly after our interests during the farce that is currently Brexit, to drive a positive industrial strategy that sees things like Swansea Bay initiatives see a green light, not a red one and drives a positive approach to the health needs of our communities.
So, whilst I will be doing my own research, I would appreciate other peoples views. Either comment below, email me or message me with your thoughts, experiences and views.
