Swansea West - Mike O'Carroll

The Welsh Liberal Democrats have announced Mike O’Carroll as their candidate for Swansea West for the next General Election.

Mike O’Carroll is a local resident and long-term local campaigner who will contest the Swansea West constituency for the Welsh Liberal Demcorats at the next election. He is a former business owner and former Army reservist who currently lives in the Sandfields, having moved to Swansea 10 years ago.

Mike’s political priorities are fixing our NHS, tackling the cost of living crisis, and delivering a fair deal on tax and benefits. He is a long-term supporter of the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon and believes that both the UK and Welsh governments are failing to take the opportunity to make Wales a leader in green energy. 

Commenting on his selection Mike O’Carroll stated:

“With the new constituency boundaries for Swansea West, it’s a straight fight between myself and the Labour candidate. The Conservatives and Plaid Cymru have no councillors at all in the new seat and I’m asking Conservative and Plaid supporters to lend me their vote to beat Labour here. I'll be standing up to Labour’s nanny state and putting forward my plan to get Wales working with free childcare support, investment in green energy, and a fair deal on tax and benefits”.

He added: “It is clear that in the next election that the country needs change that will deliver economic growth with a fair deal at its core. I and the Welsh Liberal Democrats  will be campaigning to deliver a fair deal on jobs, the cost of living, and our NHS. The next election will be a real chance to deliver change in Swansea and I’m asking people to back me to deliver that.”

Swansea Council opposition group leader, Cllr Chris Holley OBE, commented:

“Mike is a great candidate for change in Swansea. He’s local, hard-working, level-headed and not afraid to speak his mind. For too long Wales and Swansea have been dominated by the Labour party and they have let us down. It’s time for a new approach, and having worked with Mike for many years, I think he is just the man for the job.”
