|Kris Craigen: Candidate for the office of Junior Vice Commander:|
It has been my pleasure to have served in this role for the past year. During my tenure in this position the following accomplishments have occurred: there has been an increase in the pull tab machine sales by 145%; developed a working relationship with the finance officer and bookkeeper to create accountability for bar funds; reestablished the adult probation program; increased liquor sales by 50% while decreasing the expenses; worked with the catering company and the club manager which resulted in the hosting of several large events that increased the profitability of the Patriot Hall room; worked with the Variety show coordinator; the charity committee and reestablished connections with the Arizona State Veteran’s Home to provide lunch and a show to patients from the Veteran’s home.
During my tenure I have worked to improve my skills by training in the following areas: Arizona Title 4 Basic and Management Liquor Law Training; Arizona Food Handlers Training and American Legion Basic Training.
My personal background includes service in the U.S. Navy as a Mater-at-Arms, married for 28 years to Mark, with two grown sons. My youngest son has just enlisted in the U.S. Navy in the Nuclear Engineering program. I was a member of the American Legion Post 117 for four years and have been a member of Post 44 for two years. During my time as a member of the American Legion I served both as an Executive Committee Member and as Junior Vice Commander. It has been very gratifying to serve Post 44 in my current role and I ask for your vote to continue on the path of continuing to make Post 44 a positive place for our members to visit, a tribute to our veterans and our community.
Regards, Kristen Craigen
