Ensuring our whole local economy benefits from the Moorside plans.
Trudy started her career at Sellafield and, with her husband employed in the nuclear industry, she knows first-hand how important the nuclear industry is to our local economy.
Trudy's priorities are to support our world class nuclear and industrial future, promote our specialist skills, safeguard jobs and ultimately secure a stronger economy. Trudy wants to make a success of the modern industrial strategy, to be an asset to the Northern Powerhouse and to realise our full potential as a Centre of Nuclear Excellence and global exporter of knowledge and products.
Trudy said: "We need to ensure that a new nuclear plant at Moorside, and the 21,000 jobs created by it, comes to Cumbria. I will work hard to ensure that Copeland is prepared for and benefits from the multi-billion pound transformational projects.
"I know that as a pioneering, hard working and innovative community we can succeed, with the Government's support. We have the people with the skills, we have the potential; we have the essential natural resources and landscape where people love to live, work, learn and invest. We have every reason to be optimistic - to become an asset to the country's economic performance and world leading reputation."
