Biography

Craig Mount was elected to the City Council in August 2014. Craig has been a resident of Sierra Vista since 2006 and was briefly stationed here while attending Fort Huachuca’s US Army Intelligence School in 2002.

Craig was born and raised in Houston, Texas and graduated from J. Frank Dobie High School in 1996. After high school, he attended college part-time in Houston, splitting time for employment to pay for school and gain experience in procurement, management, and sales with Xerox Co., Verizon, and Best Buy Co. In 2001, he enlisted in the US Army following the terrorist attacks of 9/11 as an active duty intelligence Soldier. He conducted Basic Training at Fort Jackson, SC, and Advanced Individual Training at Fort Huachuca, AZ. Craig was stationed at Fort Hood, TX and was assigned to the 1st Squadron, 7th United States Cavalry. In 2004, the unit deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) II and conducted operations in Baghdad, Iraq, returning home in 2005. Craig was then assigned to Intelligence Electronic Warfare Test Directorate (IEWTD) at Fort Huachuca, AZ. He supported the operational test and evaluation of experimental technologies, and earned a Knowlton Award for his work conducting Counter-IED experiments. Craig left the US Army honorably in 2010 with a Meritorious Service Medal, Combat Action Badge, and other awards.

While serving in the military, Craig completed his college education, earning a Bachelors of Science degree in Intelligence Operations, followed by a Masters in Management, both from Wayland Baptist University. Since leaving the military, he completed a Masters in Public Administration from Wayland Baptist University, received Black Belt certifications in Six Sigma and LEAN Six Sigma from Villanova University, and his Project Management Professional certification from Project Management Institute. Since 2009, he has served as a project manager for ICE Inc., a locally owned Sierra Vista defense-contracting firm. Since 2012, he has served as an Adjunct Professor for Wayland Baptist University teaching management and government courses.

Craig serves as council liaison for the Sierra Vista Library Commission, the Upper San Pedro Partnership, and the Industrial Development Authority. During the 2014 campaign, he was active in the Proposition 408 campaign to repeal the Red Light Cameras in Sierra Vista, which included the one of the largest ballot initiatives in the city’s history and Election Day landslide repeal. He is a member of the Sierra Vista Chamber of Commerce, the Huachuca 50, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Southwest Association of Buffalo Soldiers, and The American Legion. He recently accepted a position to serve as board member for the newly formed Southeast Arizona Hospitality Association (SEAHA).

In 2006, Craig married his wife and best friend Brittney Mount, moving to Sierra Vista a week after being married to start their lives together. They attend Calvary Chapel in Sierra Vista, have four local rescue dogs (Jill, Koda, Dodge, and Tank), and are often simply out enjoying the local and southern Arizona life, events, wine & food, and weather.
