Gwyn Price entered the National Assembly when he won the Islwyn seat in May 2011.
Gwyn Price is a stalwart of the Labour movement and has an enviable track record as a Labour campaigner and politician.
Gwyn’s political credentials are gleaned from experience having been deputy leader of Caerphilly County Borough Council and holding the cabinet portfolio for Human Resources, Constitutional Affairs and Procurement.
In his professional life he was contracts manager for a local authority and held responsibility for a team of ninety employees.
He was also branch chair of UCATT, branch treasurer of NUPE and executive member of Caerphilly UNISON.
Gwyn is a member of the Islwyn campaign team and was Chair of Governors for Penllwyn Primary School and Treasurer for Pontllanfraith BLP.
When it comes to campaigning the best place to find Gwyn is on the doorstep standing for what he believes in and proudly making the case for a Labour victory.
Besides his far reaching professional and political experience Gwyn is very much a family man.
Born in the South Wales valley town of Tirphil he grew up fully aware of the negative effects of social and economic decline. Gwyn’s political sensibilities are defined by his life experience and his political motivation comes from a deep desire to realise social and economic equality for all.
His loyalty to the Labour party is absolute. Through good times and bad times our message of social justice is at the heart of our communities aspirations.
