Who we are...

Craig DiSesa


Craig came to the Middle Resolution with a wealth of knowledge and first hand experience in the private sector. He learned hands on as an engineer working on Aircraft carriers, a technical sales representative for a world leader in water treatment consulting, and as a sales and business manager for a small family business how to appreciate and understand the power of the free markets. His diverse experience in various fields made him recognize how free market principles have been the economic foundation of our country, and how they have enabled America to be the greatest provider of human needs in history. 

Craig’s greatest priority is his family, and together with his wife, Heather, Craig focused on raising his children with a strong faith and the highest degree of integrity. 

In 2009 Craig began to feel the call to transition to the political arena. During a Heritage Foundation development event at his home, several successful business leaders approached him and asked if he would be interested in joining them in a battle to fight the progressive policies that were destroying this great country. Shortly thereafter, The Middle Resolution was founded. 

Craig looks to the future with confidence and hope and is both humbled and honored to serve The Middle Resolution as its President.
