Craig Haydon


I was born and raised in Austin, Texas. I went to the University of Texas, and graduated in 1965 with a BS in Mathematics. I was hired directly out of college by the then Southwestern Bell Telephone Company. I went to work in Houston as a manager of computer and data operations. I had the good fortune to meet a young lady by the name of Claudia, who also worked for the same company. We got married in 1967 and have been blessed with 5 great children, who in turn, have blessed us with 7 beautiful grandkids, so far.

My career with 1st SWBT then SBC and ATT took Claudia and I to Houston, San Antonio, St. Louis, Ft. Worth, Topeka, New Jersey and finally back to Austin where I directed the legislative operations for the State of Texas as well as overseeing the Texas delegation in Washington D.C.

I retired after nearly 30 years and was asked by the company to continue as a legislative consultant. After 8 more years I retired again, and, Claudia and I chose Horseshoe Bay to be our place of residence. We built our current home and moved in just in time to celebrate Christmas in 1998.

I have served on committees for the Mayor and previous councils, chaired the POA Earth Day clean up program, and am currently the Chairman of The Hill Country 100 Club, an organization that assists our 1st responders' families in the event of a catastrophe. We turn left at the top of Thanksgiving Mountain and are active members of St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church. We count ourselves as extremely fortunate to be part of such a great community and city.
