Councillor David Fuller was elected Lord Mayor of Portsmouth on 14 May 2019, for a one year term of office

For more information, you can:


David Fuller was born in Fratton on 16 May 1965 and has lived and worked in Portsmouth all of his life. He was elected as Councillor in 16 August 2007 and represents Fratton Ward as a Liberal Democrat.

Councillor Fuller's career is in the care field, starting as a volunteer at the weekends first at Harry Sotnick House, and moving on to work in the private sector. He has successfully managed several care homes including having responsibility for the care of young people with physical disabilities. David currently works as the registered manager of a home specialising in the care of 24 elderly dementia clients.

Councillor Fuller is an active Freemason and a strong believer in charity, and works year on year fundraising for the people of Portsmouth, community groups, and organisations. His hobbies include socialising, and he loves the theatre. In the past, he has taken part in amateur dramatics with the Solent Theatre Company, and has organised several charity events at the Kings Theatre on behalf of previous Lord Mayors.

The Lord Mayor is extremely proud to have been elected for the second time into the role for the year 2019/20, being especially honoured that his second term falls on such an important year when it is his privilege to represent this great city for the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Councillor Fuller is delighted that his sister, Mrs Leza Tremorin, is by his side and will once again be supporting him as Lady Mayoress.


Our goal this year is to support as many charities as possible around the city by hopefully raising £50,000, so we are able to give £1,000 each. We wish to call this The Lord Mayor of Portsmouth Community Chest Appeal 2019/20. We have chosen to do this because we are acutely aware of just how much £1,000 could greatly help a local charity and its volunteers to continue and improve their incredible work throughout the city. 

Any charities wishing to be considered for the Portsmouth Community Chest can email our committee secretary Tracy McClure with details of their charity and how it supports the people of Portsmouth and how the £1,000, if awarded, would be spent.
