Jayne Cowan celebrates 25 years as a councillor for Rhiwbina

Rhiwbina and Pantmawr councillor Jayne Cowan is today (Monday 6 May) celebrating 25 years on Cardiff Council.

"What an honour and a privilege," she said. "I only wish my wonderful dad was here to see it."

Jayne was first elected to the council in 1999 as a Conservative councillor, and in 2011 she became one of the youngest deputy lord mayors in the city's history. It was a milestone for another reason, as she was deputy to Cardiff's first Plaid Cymru lord mayor, Delme Bowen.

In 2012, standing as an independent, she attracted more votes (3,808) than any other local election candidate in Wales. And at the most recent election in 2022, as a Conservative again, she again topped the poll with 18% of the vote.

In 2019 she became an MBE for her public and political services. She is now the longest serving woman on Cardiff Council.

Today, Jayne has posted a video on social media, paying tribute to her fellow ward councilors, Adrian Robson and Oliver Owen, and thanking the council, the police, other agencies, local businesses, and especially the people of Rhiwbina and Pantmawr.

You can see the video on her social media channels: Facebook, X/ Twitter, or Instagram.
