Cardiff North Conservatives have selected Craig Williams as their Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for the 2015 General Election.
Craig is a Councillor of the Pentyrch Ward of Cardiff City Council and Chair of the Council's Economy and Culture Committee. He has worked tirelessly to improve economic prospects across the city, whilst holding the Labour held council to account. Having fought the Cardiff South and Penarth by-election in 2012, Craig is an experienced campaigner and dedicated local champion.
Alongside serving as a city councillor and as chairman of South Wales Central Conservatives, Craig worked as a researcher for the former leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Professor Nicholas Bourne. Craig currently works as a policy advisor to Byron Davies, Shadow Minister for Transport, Regeneration and European Affairs as well as a non exec director of Cardiff Bus.
Craig lives in Cardiff with his young family, where he is actively involved in the local community, sitting on several committees. If elected as MP for Cardiff North, Craig is committed to keeping the city's streets safe, immigration low and ensuring that the economy continues to recover.
Craig successfully retained his seat in last year's Local Government election with a swing of 11 per cent from Labour and with 54 per cent of the vote and believes this can be replicated in Cardiff North.
