Matt Smith is a Welsh Conservative campaigner and a passionate Unionist who believes Wales' strength is greatest in a successful and harmonious United Kingdom. He will fight to preserve the integrity of the territorial constitution of Britain.
He is a conviction Conservative who believes in extending the sovereignty of the British people. As a former Vote Leave policy analyst he wants Wales' historic Brexit vote implemented in full so we can seize the valleys of opportunity that flow from a fully sovereign UK trade policy and industrial policy.
He is campaigning to close the gap that has opened between the incompetent Welsh Labour elites inside the Cardiff Bay bubble and the people of Wales, so that public policy emerges out of the People's Priorities.
Matt is a One Nation Conservative who believes in an opportunity society where playing by the rules, hard work and perseverance are rewarded.
The Conservative and Unionist Party is a great civic institution that is at its best when it is part of the community. Community conservatism - innovative social action projects, working with grass roots charities and pub campaigns - show we are part of the communities we represent.
Matt has written about Welsh politics for The Telegraph, Conhome, BrexitCentral, CapX, Institute of Welsh Affairs and Gwydir:
