“This is Livermore, it is our home, and I believe we can achieve more with our students. I would be humbled to have your vote and will work to take our schools to the next level.”

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

I have been involved in our Livermore schools for almost 30 years. Our three sons attended Livermore schools from elementary through high school and my wife and I were involved parents throughout their educational experience. Leading up to being elected LVJUSD Trustee, I’d 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 our student-athletes. For the past 19 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. Prior to being elected your LVJUSD Trustee, 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. The mission has changed, but my passion for serving the public remains steadfast.

As Board President these past several years, I have witnessed and experienced the hardships of a worldwide pandemic, overcome fiscal uncertainty, and continuously pushed for opportunity and excellence in our schools.

It has been my mission these two terms in office to seek additional student opportunity at every turn. In pursuit of this goal, we have crafted a significant and very effective Federal presence, engaged our supportive community as well as numerous partners.

These efforts have and will continue to provide additional opportunities for years to come. Now it is time to expand our efforts, continue our transformational projects, and increase student opportunity. I am fully dedicated to serving our students, I understand the issues, and have the ability to get it accomplished. With your support I know we can achieve excellence, and together we will achieve our common goal – Truly Great Schools for ALL Livermore Students!
