Hi, I'm Peter!

I believe in Peoria, and I’m a proud resident of the 2nd District.

I know our neighborhoods can be more prosperous, equitable, and resilient—that’s why I’m running for City Council. I’m a public servant with a passion for making government more efficient. I’ve done this by incorporating data into decision making for the City of Peoria, recruiting teachers for Peoria Public Schools, and bringing Peoria Park District programming to disinvested communities across our city. In addition, I’ve participated in the West Bluff Council and served on the boards of the Moss Bradley Residential Association and the Peoria Innovation Alliance.
