The Conservative Party has announced its candidate for the Copeland by-election.
Trudy Harrison, 40, has spent time working for Copeland Borough Council and at Sellafield, and works as project manager mainly in the construction and energy industries.
She lives in Bootle with her husband and four teenage daughters.
“This important by-election is an opportunity for the people of Copeland to send a message that the referendum result must be respected.
“Copeland has had Labour MPs and Labour Councils for years. They’ve ignored us and failed to deliver the jobs, infrastructure and services we need, and now they want to ignore how we voted in the referendum.
“I look forward to meeting as many local residents as possible in the coming weeks and setting out how voting Conservative this time will support our local nuclear industry, and deliver the investment Copeland deserves.”
