Paul Larkin, the Conservative candidate for the Harrington ward by-election to Workington Town Council, last night received endorsement from Harrington's longest serving Independent councillor.
Councillor Hilary Harrington, who has represented the Harrington ward for 17 years at Town and Borough Council level, took to Facebook to exhort locals to vote for Paul on Thursday 4th August.
As you may know I have been an Independent Councillor representing Harrington for 17 years I have thought long and hard regarding the forthcoming by-election in Harrington and know both candidates. I will be voting for Paul Larkin who is a decent person with great interest for the best for Harrington Community.
- Councillor Hilary Harrington
Paul Larkin is the local candidate with Harrington's best interests at heart. He continues to fight for Harrington and High Harrington, particularly against cuts to community provision by the Labour-led Workington Town Council.
