 Torfaen - Assembly in doghouse
Torfaen has seen investment in education to reduce class sizes in primary schools.
Down the valley in leafy Ponthir, Doreen Thomas, a former Independent community councillor for the village, said she believed the Assembly hasn't done much for Torfaen - apart from the free bus passes to the elderly and some cash for regeneration projects in the north.
She said: "In terms of funding we have received money for Trevethin, St Cadoc's and Penygarn in Pontypool and Thornhill in Cwmbran for Communities First which encourages communities to take a major role in their regeneration." Mrs Finnigan added TVA had been given £1 million over two years to develop the project.
