Meet Craig Faith

He has known that he has wanted to serve his fellow man since watching episodes of “Emergency” as a young man. And for the past 30-plus years, he has realized his dream – working for each of the emergency services branches in different capacities and in different areas of the country. He has been a leader for his team and the citizens he has served in a number of emergency situations, including hurricanes, tornadoes and man-made disasters. Today he is working to achieve yet another dream – to serve his friends and neighbors of District 2 as a member of the Lee’s Summit City Council.

Career

In his efforts to serve others, Craig often put his personal safety and well-being at risk. However, he always thought about his crew and the other people he was working with to come up with strategies that would provide the best outcomes.

Beyond the high-stress situations, Craig again exhibits strong leadership skills, proving time and again his ability to be a fair, conscientious and budget conscious manager. His varied experience, level-headedness and quick thinking also has made Craig the “go to” man for both state and national issues affecting the emergency services industry. Craig is frequently called upon to be a contributor and advocate for emergency services policies and procedures at the state and national level. In addition to frequently testifying in Jefferson City, Mo., Craig also travels to Washington, D.C. During a recent trip, Craig spent three days meeting with members of Congress and key congressional aides to discuss legislative issues critical to his industry.

Craig is also known as a “bridge builder.” In recent years, he has helped his long-time employer, John Knox Village, forge strong relationships with a variety of local, state, regional and national public service organizations, which has enhanced the Village’s ability to serve its residents as well as members of surrounding communities.
