Here is a sampling of some things Islanders say about Craig:


Jen Flood: “Craig cares deeply about Mercer Island and ensuring that every member of our community thrives. He's already dedicated hundreds of volunteer hours to volunteering for the city, so I know he'll be committed to putting in the time and work on the council to make thoughtful, disciplined decisions. I also value and respect his deep integrity - I'd be proud to have him represent us.”

Terry Moreman, retired Executive Director of the Mercer Island Chamber of Commerce: " Craig is thoughtful, articulate, analytical, and open minded.   He has the skills the Council needs.” 

Brad Fowler: "I have known Craig since 1989, when he joined the firm at which I was working.  He is collaborative, open-minded,  and focused on problem solving and fact-based analysis for decision-making. Craig is a welcome presence at the table where difficult issues require action."

Steve and Diane Smith: “Craig will be a superb City Council member. He has a sophisticated understanding of municipal financial issues. He is also fair minded, willing to listen and courageous.”

Tim Hunkapiller:  “It's important that Mercer Island move forward based on facts and a sense of decency. I trust Craig to represent us well in both regards.”

Ken Glass“Craig would be a terrific addition to the City Council – he has the right temperament, he listens and his experience as an actuary is exactly what Mercer Island needs now.”

Lynda Olson:  "I have found Craig to be consistently honest, candid and transparent, and open minded. He listens and communicates respectfully even when he disagrees. He is a proponent of fact-based decision making. He believes in solutions that are realistic and maximize benefits for the most number of Islanders."

Brian Thomas:  "Craig showed a clear and consistent commitment to digging into the data, was detail-oriented without losing sight of the big picture, and worked very hard to understand all viewpoints.

Kate and Tom Lamperti:  "...we are grateful that Craig recognizes the benefit of the parks and green spaces, arts education and enrichment, and the strength that comes with inclusivity. He has modeled his values as a committed volunteer and welcoming neighbor."

Jody Lee:  "Craig has a strong sense of community and has shown repeatedly that he is willing to put his time and energy to bring positive change."
