"I am hugely thankful to the people of Calder Valley for putting their faith in me for the fourth time and electing me as their MP. It has been an absolute privilege to serve as your MP for the last 10 years and I am honoured that I have done enough to earn your support once again. I will work hard and endeavour to represent all my constituents to the best of my ability, regardless of who they voted for.
At the election I received almost 52% of the vote, the highest in the history of the seat, on an increased turnout. On what was a great night for the Conservatives nationally I was glad to see the people here in Calder Valley make their voices heard, and I will repay the trust placed in me by delivering on the promises made to you by the previous government and implementing the decision made by the British people in the 2016 referendum. I will also work hard to support local businesses here in the Calder Valley and ensure that flood defences are in place to help keep safe those in our community that are threatened by flooding.
Parliament will now return, and I will continue to hold surgeries, meet constituents and represent the people of Calder Valley to the best of my ability. If you have any enquiries please don’t hesitate to contact me on my e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you once again for your support at the election."
Craig Whittaker MP
