Craig was "born and raised in Lincoln." He says, "I graduated
from Lincoln Community High School in 2000 and attended Lincoln
College [where] I was co-valedictorian." Craig also has a bachelor's
degree in Law Enforcement from Western Illinois University.
During his Law Enforcement career, Craig "worked at the Mount
Pulaski Police Department before transitioning to the Logan County
Sheriff's Office." Craig said after six years in the Sheriff's
Office, "I had the opportunity to lateral to the Lincoln Police
Department in 2011 and am currently a Sergeant at the Lincoln Police
Department." He is currently pursuing a Masters in public
administration at the University of Illinois at Springfield.
Craig's wife is Angela Craig and they have two children, "a
three-year-old girl and an almost two-year-old boy." His parents,
Ronald and Marilyn Craig, "have always been involved in our local
community over the years" and his grandparents farmed in "the rural
Beason area. I spent much of my youth playing on our farm.”
Craig said, "One of my interests in being involved with the Logan
County Board is to learn more about small government. This
opportunity coincides with my continued education and I am excited
about the experience. I am still getting to know all the issues and
my main goal would be to provide 'good government' to the best of my
ability. I look forward to meeting and speaking with members of the
community to get their opinions on the issues."
