The people who know me best

When we set out on this journey a few months ago, I didn't know quite what to expect. But one thing was clear from day one: I have a strong support system surrounding me. I can't thank you enough for being a part of it.

I'm also honored to have the support of the people in my life who know me best — first and foremost on that list being my wife, Angelica, as well as our friends and families.

I’ve known Peter since he was a young man. He works very hard at everything he undertakes and doesn’t ask for recognition. We could use that kind of humility in our leaders.

I may be a little biased, but I think Peter would be an ideal school board member. He knows how to listen, he fights for what’s right, and he respects everyone’s opinion, no matter where they stand.

I support Peter because he wants to identify underutilized district lands that can be used to provide community benefits like affordable housing, farmers’ markets, gathering spaces... and dog parks.

I hope you'll visit my website to join our team down the final stretch.
