Students from Crosskeys Campus
Politics Society were recently given the opportunity to put forward their views and questions to Ruth Jones, Labour candidate for Monmouth, in a recent visit to the College.
Ruth Jones engaged with students, sharing her background and motivations for entering politics and discussed issues that she will stand for at the election.
Student, Lois Woodward said: “Meeting Ruth was very interesting. I think it’s important for young people to engage with politics as it affects our everyday lives, so it was great to discuss issues we think are important.”
Ruth Jones said: “It has been really refreshing to meet and engage with young people, who will be voting for the first time on May 7th. It was invigorating to hear the students talk and ask questions of issues that matter to them.”
