Pete Babich has always been a reliable Democratic voter, but the election of George W. Bush and the invasion of Iraq motivated him to become more involved with politics. He joined the North-Central Democratic Club and served as Membership Chair. In 2005, he was the prime mover to form the Poway Democratic Club, and has been the club president or a member of the board every year since then. Pete walked his first precinct in 2002 and has walked multiple precincts in every election since. He’s been the Poway GO Team Community Coordinator since 2005 and recently accepted the roles of North-Inland Region Community and Data Coordinator. In the 2022 elections, he had a key role in the County Party’s effort to train more data coordinators so that GO Team members have timely and accurate materials to help get out the vote. A seven-year Navy veteran who served in submarines, Pete has a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering. He worked at Hewlett-Packard for seventeen years, starting as a product designer and ended as a senior manager for HP’s worldwide, color, inkjet printer business. He then ran his own business for twenty-three years developing and selling business planning software to small and mid-size organizations.
