Craig Nominated for NH Labor Commissioner

James W. Craig
James W. Craig, of the Craig, Deachman & Amann firm in Manchester, has been nominated by Gov. Hassan to serve as commissioner of the NH Department of Labor.

Craig, who served five terms in the NH House, his last as House Democratic leader, left the legislature and made an unsuccessful bid for the Democratic nomination for the US House in 2006.

He was admitted to the NH Bar in 1983 and has concentrated on general litigation, real estate, and personal injury matters. He served as president of the Manchester Bar Association and was a member of the board of the Greater Manchester Center for Arts and Music.

If confirmed by the Executive Council, Craig would replace George Copadis, whom Hassan named as commissioner of the Department of Employment Security.

A Manchester native, Craig is a U.S. Army veteran and Keene State College graduate who obtained his law degree from Franklin Pierce Law Center.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
