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.
