Location: North Wales

About: Ed is a final year A-level student in North Wales, with an offer to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford. He joined the Liberal Democrats just before the 2019 General Election. Ed joined as he realised liberal values need more than just votes - they need to be actively defended and fought for against authoritarian parties. His particular interest is in building policy that actually helps people and fights suffering, rather than just sounds good. He's working to make it easier for every young person in the party to get involved with creating and writing policy. Beyond politics, Ed loves rugby, running, weightlifting and poetry.

Role in RhI Cymru:
The Policy Officer is responsible with the rest of the Executive for developing policy and ensuring that policies that are are beneficial to young people remain on the agenda of the party. They are the youth representative to the Welsh Liberal Democrat Policy Development Commitee and responsible for the submission of motions to Welsh and Young Liberal conferences.
