Craig Mattson
  • My name is Craig Mattson and I have been a member of the Thief River Falls School District since 2019.


    I am involved in the following committees; Facility Board Committee, Negotiations Board Committee, Strategic Planning Board Committee, Activities & Athletics Committee, Wellness Advisory Committee and MSBA Outreach.


    I have lived in Thief River Falls since 1988. My wife Wendy and I have two children, Carley (Nelson) teaches first grade teacher at Challenger Elementary and Claire attends University of Wisconsin, River Falls.


    I have been a police officer since 1986. During my over 30 years with the Thief River Falls Police Department, I have worked closely with the schools as a DARE Officer, School Resource Officer and Juvenile Officer. I have served the last 14 years as Deputy Police Chief.  With my upcoming retirement from the Thief River Falls Police Department, I look forward to continuing my passion for our children and serving on the school board.
