Gospel Oak Liberal Democrats have selected community champion Jill Fraser as their candidate in the forthcoming local by-election. The by-election, triggered by the resignation of a second Labour councillor in six months, will take place on Thursday 9th November.
Jill has deep roots in the local community. She brought up her family in West Kentish Town estate and cares passionately about investing in good quality, social housing. She has worked in a fish and chip shop on Queen’s Crescent market for 25 years.
Jill previously served as a Haverstock ward councillor for 11 years. She chairs her tenants association and is a director of Queen’s Crescent Community Centre. She is also a director of a local football club.
Jill Fraser said, "I'm proud to be selected to stand as the Lib Dem candidate in Gospel Oak. I've lived, worked and campaigned in this area for years, and I want to fight for a better deal.”
“Gospel Oak has been neglected by Camden Council. We need youth services in the ward and community-led housing developments.
“Working in Queen’s Crescent market, I know that it requires fresh investment and ideas. And we can all see the mess left by the Council’s rubbish collection changes.”
"Labour take Gospel Oak for granted and two of their councillors have walked away in the last six months. The Lib Dems are the challengers and we can provide the strong local voice that is needed.”
