Key interests and achievements

James is committed to achieving the best possible results for the constituency of Brecon & Radnorshire and for Mid Wales. Whether this is through supporting and nurturing businesses, or ensuring the provision of good local health care and other services – this area is often forgotten when it comes to funding and investment and James wants to highlight the fantastic opportunities here in Brecon & Radnorshire. James is a keen rugby player and is proud to have captained the second team with Gwernyfed Rugby Club. James loves to keep fit and regularly attends the gym. A proud dog owner, James loves walking in the wonderful countryside in his constituency with his spaniel Daisy.

Personal history

James was born and raised in the wonderful constituency of Brecon and Radnorshire. Brought up on the family farm, James has a passion for the outdoors, for agriculture and protecting the valuable role that industry plays in our area. James’ teenage years were spent in Young Farmers taking him all around the constituency, building friendships and partnerships, developing life skills.  James did not follow the traditional political career route, choosing not to go to University, instead learning through work experience.  He is passionate about achieving the best possible results for his constituency.

Political history

In 2017 James was elected as a County Councillor for Gwernyfed Ward and then Cabinet Member in Powys County Council. In May 2021 James was elected Senedd Member for his home of Brecon and Radnorshire, the proudest moment of his political life. James is currently the Shadow Minister for Mental Heath, Wellbeing and Mid Wales, a brief which he relishes.
