I am incredibly proud and grateful to have been elected to serve our communities across North Wales as your Member for the Senedd.  I will work hard to pay back the trust you have placed in me.  If there is anything I can do to help, please get in touch by emailing Carolyn.Thomas@Senedd.Wales.

Key interests and achievements

My key interests are the natural environment, highways and transportation, waste and recycling, children and young people, social justice and fairness.

Personal history

I am a married mother of three young adults, a grandmother and dog owner.  My favourite past times are walking in the countryside, exploring historic towns and real ale.

Professional background

I have worked in a variety of jobs while raising my family most recently working as a postwoman and prior to that as a post office clerk. I lived in Italy in my early 20s.  I have organised community events, charity fundraisers and produced the local newsletters for the last ten years.

Political history

Before being elected as a Member of the Senedd I was Deputy Leader of Flintshire County Council and Cabinet member for Streetscene & Countryside. I have been a Flintshire County Councillor since 2008 and also a town & community councillor representing two wards, Llanfynydd and Treuddyn. I have been a political group leader, Committee Chairwoman and Civic Leader (Chairwoman/Mayor) of the Council. I joined the Labour party to fight against austerity and the impact on public services, I have also highlighted the devastating impact of Universal credit and social injustice.


I have campaigned for public bus transport, investment in highways funding, the music service, investment in children’s play areas, early years funding and for the natural environment as a County Councillor.
