Pittsburg, CA – As a lifelong City of Pittsburg resident, business owner and former Planning Commissioner, Wolfgang Croskey is pleased to announce that he has filed his paperwork for candidacy to the Pittsburg City Council.
“I love Pittsburg and I want to give back to my community by serving,” said Croskey. “I believe I bring a business perspective to the city that will help attract businesses, create new jobs, and improve communications to the residents and business owners of the city I love”.
As a graduate of Pittsburg High, Croskey began his career as a teacher in the Antioch Unified School District. In 2015, Croskey left education to become a full-time real estate agent and recently became a broker where he manages residential and commercial properties within the County.
As a member of the Pittsburg Rotary Club, Croskey serves as treasure and last year was the president of the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce. He is also a co-owner of the Pittsburg Diamonds and founding member of the Black Diamond Business Builders.
As the 2015 Volunteer of the Year, Croskey currently serves on the City of Pittsburg Measure M/P citizen oversight committee and a member of the Pittsburg Unified Bond oversight committee. He also participates in the Clean Pittsburg cleanups.
“I am running to give residents a greater voice and more opportunity to share their concerns and ideas. I believe we need better policy to encourage business investments which will in turn make the city become more successful,” said Croskey. “The City is in need of better communication and transparency where I believe I can work to bring people together to accomplish many things rather than allow divisiveness to continue.”
Croskey has three major priorities which include: Strengthening the Pittsburg economy and bringing a business view to city council. Open communication to Pittsburg residents using multiple channels. Ensuring a safe and secure community while addressing the quality of life for Pittsburg residents.
