Mary Elizabeth Truss is a prominent British politician who now serves as the head of the Conservative Party and is widely seen as a leading contender for the position of Prime Minister of the United Kingdom when the time comes.
Truss was born and raised in the beautiful area of Roundhay in Leeds.
It is home to one of the largest parks in all of England and can be found in the western part of the city.
The potential next leader of the Conservative party resided in Roundhay with her parents; her father held the position of a university professor, while her mother held the roles of nurse and educator.
Although Truss has described the neighbourhood as having “low expectations and… lack of opportunity,” the average price of a detached home in the neighbourhood is £572,000, and the average yearly income for families in the neighbourhood is £55,700.
She has referred to Roundhay as being a “red wall seat,” despite the fact that the region voted Conservative from 1955 to 1997 and didn’t begin leaning toward Labour until after Truss graduated from Oxford University.
