Jenny's priorities for Cardiff Central
"My top priority is to get the South Wales Metro built. Work has already started on the new Central bus station, which will be integrated with new trams and trains. This will make Cardiff easier to get to for commuters, businesses and tourists."
"We need to build new warm, affordable homes around these transport links. That means everyone can benefit from our capitals booming economy and clean up the air we breathe."
"I will champion the Assembly's new powers to chase bad landlords who need to provide good quality homes in exchange for rent"
"I want Good Food For All and leisure and library services which promote good health and combat loneliness."
"We need to improve mental health and local mental health services."
