About Kirsty

Kirsty with the family on the farm

Since being elected as a Lib Dem Assembly Member in 1999, Kirsty Williams has gained a reputation as a tireless worker for the people of Brecon and Radnorshire. She has helped local people with tens of thousands of individual issues and problems as well as leading countless high profile campaigns in our area. Kirsty has fought to protect and improve our community hospitals, campaigned against the closure of secondary schools in our area and battled to save local services including Post Offices and libraries.

Born in Taunton in 1971 to a librarian from Llanelli and a housewife from Swansea, from the age of three Kirsty grew up in Brynea in Camarthenshire. She was educated at the village primary school and then St Michaels School in Llanelli. Kirsty went on to study at Manchester University and the University of Missouri, before working at Carmarthenshire College and for a small business in Cardiff as a Marketing Executive.

Having joined the Liberal Party aged 15, Kirsty was selected as the Lib Dem candidate for Ogmore in the 1997 General Election. Following the Assembly Referendum later that year, she was appointed to the National Assembly Advisory Group by the Secretary of State for Wales. Elected as Assembly Member for Brecon and Radnorshire in 1999, local people have backed her to represent our area on a further three occassions, most recently in May 2011.

During her time in the National Assembly for Wales, Kirsty has combined her dedication to constituency work with a number of roles within the Lib Dem Assembly Group. Kirsty has variously been Party spokesperson for health, finance, rural affairs and the environment. In 2008, she was elected Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats gaining 60% of the vote.

Kirsty lives with her husband Richard Rees and their three young daughters, Angharad, Carys and Rachel, on the family farm near Brecon. Outside politics Kirsty enjoys spending time with her family, helping on the farm, and shopping!
