We asked all the candidates to provide a candidate statement of up to 750 words, which should include some background about them and why they’re standing.

Mia Rees

Welsh Conservative Party


I am 29, and live in Kenfig Road, in the south of the ward, with my husband and dog. For my day job I work for a charity which supports young people into education, training and employment which has developed my interest in youth and housing policy. Over the summer I have been working with the Whitchurch and Tongwynlais Councillor Team and have been out speaking to residents about the issues that matter to them. In my spare time I’m a keen cyclist and mountain biker.

I am standing because I care about Whitchurch and Tongwynlais. I have seen first hand the positive impact that good Councillors can have and unfortunately the negative effect of lazy or disinterested Councillors. I love where I live and I want to be part of making it even better. Most of the issues which frustrate residents can be improved and I’m determined to make that happen. 

The main areas I will focus on include:

  • Tackling parking issues and traffic concerns – including inappropriate parking by non residents and illegal pavement parking
  • Bringing pride to the community – by protecting our green spaces and tacking litter issues 
  • Addressing crime and anti-social behaviour – making sure our streets are safe and welcoming for all residents
