Jill Pattinson was a once-only candidate for parliamentary election. That was in the New South Wales Legislative Assembly elections for Albury in 1995. This made her the first woman to nominate for the seat of Albury. In this election she supported the building of a by-pass road, one of the major issues of the campaign. She contested the election in order to boost the vote for her party in the Legislative Council, in which it hoped to win a seat and hold the balance of power.
Jill Pattinson migrated from England in 1981 and settled in the Albury electorate, first at Gerogery, then Howlong, and finally in Albury. While at Howlong she was involved in efforts to stop fluoridation of the town's water. She has published two small books of poetry. She has two children.
