Join Business for Calderdale at Town Hall Dental at 2pm on Friday, 9th November for a Q & A session with Craig Whittaker MP.
Craig gained significant experience of working in retail management before he became an MP. In addition to this, Craig was also active in local politics serving upon Heptonstall Parish Council (between 1998 – 2003) before representing both Brighouse (from 2003) and then Rastrick (from 2007) on Calderdale Council. During Craig’s time on the council he was the Cabinet Member responsible for Children’s Services between 2007 – 2010.
Here in the Calder Valley, Craig is involved with dozens of local community groups and projects throughout the different areas of the constituency. He enjoys visiting local businesses, schools and voluntary organisations and seeing the fantastic work that these do and the positive benefits that they bring to the different areas of the valley.
In Parliament, Craig takes a keen interest in those issues which affect his constituents in Calder Valley and he spends much of his time discussing local matters and specific individual cases on behalf of his constituents with Government Ministers. In January 2018, Craig was appointed to the position of HM Lord Commissioner of the Treasury (Government Whip). This role gives Craig access to Government Ministers with whom he frequently discusses issues affecting Calder Valley.
