Meeting the next generation of Politicians

Bridgend AM Carwyn Jones said “What an absolute pleasure to meet my equivalent in the Welsh Youth Parliament, the WYPM for Bridgend, Todd Murray. He was very articulate and passionate about politics. It was very interesting to hear about his political journey to date including why he chose to stand for the Welsh Youth Parliament and about his main campaign issues namely the environment and tackling plastic waste, education and mental health issues.

“He is very active in politics locally and has been involved in student politics for a number of years at his local comprehensive school. He is also hugely involved with Bridgend Youth Council.

“It was also very refreshing to see that he was very clear on future career choices. I certainly would not be surprised to see him in the Assembly at some stage in the future.”
