Anti-Incinerator Activist Selected for Plaid Cymru in Barry By-Election

Anti-Incinerator activist Dennis Clarke has been chosen as the Plaid Cymru candidate in the upcoming Barry Town Council Cadoc ward by-election.

A solicitor with 45 years’ experience, Dennis is originally from Barry and now lives in the Mount Pleasant part of Cadoxton.

After his selection, Dennis Clarke said:

“Having attended many Barry Town Council meetings as part of the fight against the Barry Docks incinerator, I was impressed by the Barry Plaid Cymru councillors commitment to the town.

“As a solicitor for 45 years, my history is one of fighting the big guy to ensure the little person got their rights. I am known for never letting go.

“My mother lived in Barry all her life and her asthma is a reason why the incinerator fight is so close to my heart. As a strong Barrian, I am passionate in getting the best for our town.”

Plaid Cymru group leader on Barry Town Council, Cllr Shirley Hodges, welcomed his selection.

Cllr Shirley Hodges said:

“Dennis Clarke is an excellent candidate who has a huge amount of experience and enthusiasm that would benefit Barry. Vote for Dennis Clarke if you want to make a real difference to this town. “

“Dennis has worked hard in the anti-incinerator campaign. He has been hugely important, ensuring that Natural Resources Wales and others realise they aren’t dealing with amateurs.”
