Preston councillor John Potter has been selected to fight for Ingol at this year's Lancashire County Council elections.
John will contest Preston West division, which contains Ingol, as well as part of Cadley, plus the Wychnor, Lea Town, and Cottam areas of Preston.
"I'm delighted to have been chosen. I want to pay tribute to County Councillor Bill Winlow and all the hard work he's done for the area - I will continue his legacy of being a strong, dynamic voice for local residents in County Hall."
If successful, John will join Ingol Councillors Pauline Brown, Neil Darby and Jason Jeffrey in fighting for local residents of Ingol and Tanterton.
