Politics in her blood
Before David Cameron became Prime Minister, Juliette was working alongside a number MP's to help find policy solutions to address some of the UK's most challenging social problems.
Juliette stood as a Parliamentary Candidate for the Cynon Valley in the 2010 general election. Not only did she make positive gains in this seat but also offered essential mutal aid to a local target seat helping to give it battleground status and a strong swing of 7%. In addition, she fought a local campaign by raising the profile of a local grandmother's campaign in the constituency to prevent A-level provision being unnecessarily centralised by the local Labour council and as a result they postponed the plan indefinitely.
In 2017, she stood in Pontypridd, where her hard work resulted in a +9.4% swing for the Conservatives.
She has been a member of the Conservative party for more than 13 years and an activist throughout that time. She is a former Chairman of Warwick Ward, CLWCA, and has regularly represented the Ward at Executive level alongside chairing the City of London and Westminster Conservative Association Conservative policy Forum.
