Whitton Conservatives Announce #TeamWhitton for the 2018 Local Elections

We are proud to announce that the following candidates will be part of Whitton Conservative’s #TeamWhitton and will be standing for Whitton in the 2018 Local Elections to Richmond Council.

Gareth Elliott
I have lived in Whitton for 36 years having been born at West Middlesex Hospital and lived with my parents at Runnymede Gardens and now with my wife and children in Derwent Road.
As a local lad I have built up a formidable reputation as someone who cares passionately about Whitton but more importantly has taken action to improve it. Elected in 2010 I promised to reverse Liberal failings in Whitton High Street and am proud that as a Councillor I led and implemented the Uplift plan which resulted in the transformation of our town centre.
I have strong links within the community setting up the Whitton Lions Rugby Club as Chairman and standing as Director for the Whitton Park Sports Association. I also now sit on the Committee of the Whitton Business Association.
I want to ensure that we now win all three and continue to take Whitton forward.
