The Welsh Liberal Democrats have announced Steven Rajam as their candidate for the Pontypridd constituency in next year’s Senedd election.
A resident of Pontyclun for more than a decade, Steven is a radio documentary-maker and music producer, and is a devoted Dad of one - his daughter attends a local primary school.
Steven is committed to bringing about real change and new opportunities for communities throughout Rhondda Cynon Taff. A proud supporter of his local high street, Steven’s especially passionate about helping to deliver more government assistance and funding for local businesses and shops across the constituency.
Born to mixed Sri Lankan and French heritage, Steven’s committed to internationalism - building links with people in Europe and beyond - and to forging a fairer society for everyone, whatever their gender, ethnicity, or social or economic background.
Away from politics, Steven is a fan of the Welsh rugby team and a sometimes long-suffering - supporter of Southampton FC, and enjoys live music and comedy.
A taskforce to look at addressing health inequalities in Wales should now be put in place by the Welsh Government. This call comes from Councillor Rodney Berman, the lead Welsh Liberal Democrat candidate for South Wales Central for the 2021 Senedd elections.
Rhondda Cynon Taff Liberal Democrats were pleased to receive a visit last week from Lib Dem MP Layla Moran.
