    Our Leaders have Forgotten the Public | Off the cuff According to Craig

    Our Leaders have Forgotten the Public | Off the cuff According to Craig

    We have hundreds of civic leaders focused on preaching to the choir: themselves.  What they’ve forgotten is that it doesn’t matter how many great policies you have if no one knows or cares about them.

    Get All the Facts First | Off the Cuff According to Craig

    Get All the Facts First | Off the Cuff According to Craig

    Conversations about what we should do about our city should start with facts, not policy.  Because we can’t craft good policy without a shared set of common, real facts.  We need to stop bending the truth in service of predisposed priorities, and instead, focus on what’s real, and have honest conversations about it.  The whole truth, and nothing but the whole truth.

    Channel Your Anger | Off the Cuff According to Craig

    It’s ok to be angry.  When we look around there’s a lot we can be frustrated about.  But it’s not ok to stay angry.  We all want a better world; we just need someone to help us all build it together.  Let’s meet each other in our anger, and find a way out of it to build something better.

    We're Failing Our Vets | Off the Cuff According to Craig

    We say we have a lot of support for veterans as a country and a city, but the truth is actually very different.  For the billions of dollars we pump into the “system," those programs are from the top down, and fail to properly support those who need it most. We spend billions training people to be weapons, and when they come home, we do nothing to help them untrain and get the help they really need, from us or each other.

    Curious Conflict is Good

    Curious Conflict is Good

    We’re taught to run away from conflict, and that it’s bad for us.  But the reality is much different.  Conflict, when approached from common ground, curiosity, and a desire to understand others, is essential to growth.
