I am Geraint Davies, Member of Parliament for Swansea West.
I have represented Swansea West since 2010, when I originally won the seat by 504 votes. Following five years of campaigning and raising local issues in Westminster, I increased the majority by more than 7,000 votes in the 2015 general election.
My family has lived in Swansea for five generations, which has also been home to celebrities such as Dylan Thomas, Catherine Zeta Jones, Sir Clive Granger, Harry Secombe, Ian Hislop, Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury and Shane Williams.
There are a quarter of a million people living in Swansea, making it a diverse city with a global brand, which has a flourishing business culture, a stronghold in the academic word, with its two universities; Swansea and Trinity Saint David; a vibrant arts scene, and of course the Premiership football club that brings hundreds of thousands to the city every year.
I am optimistic about the opportunities available in such a unique city, and I am fighting for a prosperous future which places Swansea as the centre of the renewable energy and an attractive destination for inward investment that also safeguards our beautiful cityscapes and scenic coastline.
