Mayor Craig Swartwood's Biography

Mayor Craig Swartwood
  Mayor Craig Swartwood

Craig Swartwood has been a Payson resident for over 40 years. Craig and his wife Linda have two grown children who both attended Payson schools. Craig has enjoyed a successful real estate career in the Rim Country for as long as he has resided in Payson. A former two-term Mayor has a keen understanding of the community and those who live here. After a twenty plus year absence from the community politics, Craig decided to run again and was re-elected to a third term. When not busy with Town business or Real Estate, Craig enjoys the outdoors around Rim Country and helping his son Jake with the high school football team. Go Longhorns!
