Mary Roberts will be fighting the Ynys Môn seat for Labour at the General Election.
Mary was born and brought up on Ynys Môn, where her parents were both GPs and went to local schools in Holyhead and Bodedern. She is a welsh speaker who previously worked for Albert Owen in Parliament for a number of years.
More recently, Mary has worked as a campaigner for the National Federation of Women’s Institutes (the WI) and currently works for a major national social change charity working to alleviate UK poverty.
Mary said “it’s a great honour to have been chosen as the Labour candidate for Ynys Môn”.
“I shall be attempting to build on the excellent work that Albert Owen has done for many years”
“My aim is to focus on issues of key importance to the island, including new high quality jobs, investment in training and education and more affordable and sustainable housing.”
“After years of austerity under the Conservatives, there is far too much poverty and inequality in Wales, and our education and NHS have been badly underfunded”
“I look forward to playing a role in the election of a Jeremy Corbyn led Labour government that will address these issues and be a world leader in tackling the climate emergency.”
Albert Owen MP said
“I congratulate Mary on winning the selection out of a strong field. Born and bred on the Island she has the compassion and ability to serve her home community.”
