Craig Frank is a former Republican member of the Utah House of Representatives, representing District 57 from 2003 to 2011 and from 2012 to 2013. Frank was a candidate for District 14 of the Utah State Senate.

Frank is a small business owner.

Frank earned his AA in Liberal Studies from Fullerton Community College. He then received his B.S. in Management from Brigham Young University.

In January 2011, Frank was removed from office for living outside of his district.[1] In 2009, Frank moved to a new home that he claimed he believed was still in District 57, but was actually in District 27. Frank pushed to be reinstated on the grounds that legislators never intended for his current home to be redrawn into District 27 after the 2000 census.[2]

Holly Richardson then replaced Frank but left after roughly a year to work for the Dan Liljenquist for Senate campaign. As a result, Frank was appointed to the seat which he had been forced to resign from in 2011.[3]
