Trudy Harrison selected as Conservative Candidate for the Copeland by-election

Trudy Harrison has been selected as the Conservative parliamentary candidate for the Copeland by-election.

Trudy, 40, lives in the village of Bootle with her husband Keith, a welder who works in the nuclear industry, and four daughters, who were all born at West Cumberland Hospital. She is a local champion with a track record of delivering for her community. Her commitment to her home area has seen more than £4 million invested there since 2010.

As mother of  four teenage girls and having spent time working for Copeland Borough Council and at Sellafield, Trudy is passionate about the benefits of young people engaging in part-time work. In response to the threat of closure of her local primary school, Trudy led a campaign to breathe new life into her village for future generations.

Commenting on her selection, Trudy Harrison said:

“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.”

Good luck to Trudy in the election: she will have my 100% support and effort. I know she will make a fantastic candidate and I hope she will be the next MP for Copeland in which capacity she will do a brilliant job.
