“Craig is thoughtful, curious and dedicated. His long-time passion for hiking and biking, coupled with his regular volunteer work to create and maintain trails, has given him strong insight into how our open spaces can best be preserved and enjoyed. Through experience and outreach, he understands the perspective of equestrians, hikers, and cyclists. Craig’s studied approach takes all users into account as he envisions the future of MidPen, continuing the mission of acquisition and preservation, and making further strides to improving access. The importance of open space, for native plant and animal species, our environment, human connection to nature…this can’t be overstated. The health of our future is tied to preserving and enjoying open space, and Craig has a vision that will benefit all.”

Maria Ristow: Vice-Mayor, Town of Los Gatos

“Craig will make a great addition to the Board. He has the perfect personality for the job: A polite and patient listener, a calm and thoughtful questioner, and someone who wants to thoroughly understand all facets of an issue. In deciding to run for the Board, he has sought out lengthy discussions of land management issues not just with me, a retired District ranger, but with preserve visitors of all stripes— equestrians, runners, dog walkers, and mountain bikers. As a former employee, current District docent, and lifelong naturalist, I know we will need his kind of steady and committed leadership to overcome the huge challenges confronting us—wildfire threats, endangered species protection, and invasive plants and animal management. With his inclusive mindset, Craig seeks common ground solutions to problems, whether for trail use decisions, or major policy goals. I hope he will with wit and wisdom grace the podium for many years to come.”
