Thank you for visiting the Craig “Bueno for Schools” website. I believe that we share the same priority: Providing great schools and a quality education for every student. My hope is that we can be partners and achieve these goals together.

I have been involved in our Livermore schools for almost 20 years. My three sons attended Livermore schools from elementary through high school and my wife and I were involved parents throughout their educational experience. I have served on School Site Council, multiple fundraising efforts, and on the Citizen’s Oversight Committee on Measure M. I’ve also volunteered as an athletics coach for the past 25 years, where I’ve had the pleasure of being a coach-mentor for hundreds of student athletes. For the past 15+ years I’ve been a coach at Granada High School, helping many kids realize success on and off the field.

I’ve built a reputation of competence, reliability and trust in both my volunteer and professional experiences. I served nearly 28 years as a Firefighter, where I earned the respect of a City and served as their Fire Chief until retiring in 2012.

We have a wonderful Family environment here in Livermore and I believe our schools are central to promoting an even brighter future. Aware of my deep commitment to serving children, 5 years ago officials from the school district asked me to help pass a ballot measure to save critical programs and services in our Livermore schools. I gladly accepted and co-chaired the Committee for Measure G. Together, we worked with several DEDICATED community members to seek your support in saving our:

  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)
    ✓ Saved & Expanded Opportunities!
  • Reduced class sizes in elementary schools
    ✓ Maintained!
  • High School Counselors
    ✓ Saved & Recently Added Positions!
  • Art & Music Programs
    ✓ Restored Programs!

We were successful because our community supports education and trusts in our LVJUSD schools to provide a high-quality educational experience.

Meeting with groups and individuals to communicate the details of Measure G, I gleaned an understanding about the condition of our schools and the unfunded needs.  I had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of parents and community supporters and the message I heard was resounding – Livermore wants great schools for our children.

But WE are not finished. With your support I know we can achieve excellence, and together we will achieve our common goal – Truly Great Schools for ALL Livermore Students!
