Jill Whitcher was until recently Chair of Gosport Labour party and an experienced campaigner who has stood as a candidate in Lee on many occasions. She is well-known to Lee residents who appreciate her calm, determination and good humour. She believes that the Conservatives running both local and county councils have let Gosport down badly.
She is especially worried about the cuts to social care, the closing of Children’s Centres, the £200,000 annual reduction in funding to Gosport’s schools. She is also a member of the Co-operative party and a strong supporter of the Co-operative movement and U3A.
