Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood has today rallied support for her party on the eve of the local elections with an appeal for people to "vote for their community."
Highlighting Plaid Cymru's record of delivering where the party holds power in local authorities throughout Wales, Leanne Wood said that Plaid Cymru was the party best placed to defend local services and clean up communities.
The Party of Wales Leader urged people to remember how the Tories had slashed the budgets of local authorities throughout Wales and how Labour neglect and mismanagement had compounded the problem.
Leanne Wood said:
"As Wales prepares to go to the polls tomorrow, I would urge people to use their vote to judge parties on their record.
"The Tories have slashed the budgets of local authorities throughout Wales while Labour's neglect and mismanagement have made many problems in our communities worse.
"Meanwhile, Plaid Cymru-led councils have a strong track record of delivering for our communities. In Ceredigion, more money is spent per pupil than any other area in Wales. In Gwynedd, we have defended 1,300 households from the Tories’ dreaded bedroom tax.
"On average, chief executive pay in Plaid-led councils is £22,000 lower than in areas where Labour are in power.
"The Party of Wales's record shows that it is the party best placed to defend local services and clean up our communities. The Tories are hell-bent on making further cuts and determined to sell-off our public services while internal fighting has left the Labour party in complete chaos.
"My message ahead of the local elections tomorrow is clear. Consider the parties’ record carefully, and cast a vote for your community with a vote for Plaid Cymru."
