Antony Calvert was born and raised in Wakefield. He became a councillor on Wakefield MDC in 2004. He is Wakefield through and through. During the last two years Antony has campaigned consistently as the Parliamentary Spokesman on issues that really matter: the need for a Community Stadium for Wakefield Trinity, for a fair deal for market traders ripped off by this Labour council in Wakefield and to help regenerate the city by supporting a Business Improvement District.
As MP Antony will build on these achievements, securing that new Community Stadium, bringing power back to Wakefield to regenerate the city and towns of the constituency and will be supporting Theresa May to get the best Brexit deal for Britain.
Away from politics Antony owns and runs his own communications agency, and spends a great deal of time campaigning and raising money for homeless charities. He is also a big sports fan, supporting Leeds United FC, Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Wakefield Trinity.
