Biographical Info:

Pete is a christian, a conservative and a patriot. He has held numerous positions during his lifetime, including work in the design and manufacture of dry ink toners for copiers, managing a U.S. based printed circuit board component manufacturer and more recently as an electrician constructing multi-billion dollar chip fabrication plants, utility scale solar fields and other large manufacturing facilities. His real world experience uniquely qualifies him to make decisions on the direction Pinal County should take pertaining to energy. He has a proven track record of working with others to solve complex problems. Pete and his wife, Tanya, have lived in southern Pinal county for six years and plan to retire here in this beautiful place.


Pete has always been interested in politics on some level, however, this interest peaked in 2020 during the beginning of the pandemic. Despite there being no pandemic exception to the US or AZ Constitutions, he was alarmed to see so many rights that are normally taken for granted infringed upon, or in some cases outright revoked. Freedom of movement, bodily autonomy, free speech, the ability to run a legal business, the ability to work and earn a living, as well as the right to refuse to wear an experimental medical device all were severely impacted with no ability to seek redress with government on any level. Pete will hold the line against future transgressions of this type while adhering to strict Constitutional principles of governance.

Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Providing benefits and services such as free housing to undocumented migrants at taxpayer expense. O* I find it appalling veterans are having difficulty obtaining services at VA hospitals due to them being re-purposed to prioritize care for those who have broken the law to be here. Taxes should provide services for citizens, period.
2. Allowing all parents to use tax credits and taxpayer funded empowerment scholarship accounts to enable their children to attend any private school, homeschool, or online academy of their choice. S* Competition is good for America and her students. So is choice. Not all schoolchildren are interested in attending college, ESA accounts enable other options like vocational and trade schools.
3. Interpreting the 2nd Amendment as protecting an individual’s right to keep and bear arms. S* Shall not be infringed.
4. Using taxpayer funds to support any organization that performs, promotes, or provides referrals for abortion. O* "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life..."
5. Amending the Arizona State Constitution to grant a fundamental right to every individual to an abortion. O* I support the approximately 0.4% of abortions that are performed to save the life of the mother or in cases of rape or incest. I do not support the 99.6% of abortions that are essentially birth control.
6. Providing tax breaks to certain industries over others. O* Government should not choose winners and losers in a free market.
7. Adding "sexual orientation," "gender identity," or "gender expression" to the protected classes of race, religion, age, sex, and ancestry in nondiscrimination ordinances. O* There are 2 biological sexes, male and female. Making those who pretend otherwise a protected class forces other people to pretend too, which is tyranny.
8. Allowing parents to seek professional counseling for their minor child with same-sex attraction or gender identity issues. S* While I disagree with pandering to a young child who decides one day they want to be a doctor, the next day they decide to be a firefighter and the next day perhaps they decide to be other than their birth gender, I think parents should be free to choose how to handle their child's development. However, I do oppose any extreme measures like puberty blockers or surgery for anyone under 18.
9. Enhancing penalties for leading and participation in organized retail theft rings. S* Make crime illegal again.
10. Permitting individuals and businesses to not provide services or promote ideas that violate their moral or religious beliefs. S* It clearly infringes upon the religious liberty of a business owner to force them to go against their deeply held beliefs in the interest of "fairness." There are many businesses to patronize, such that everyone should be able to find a business that is a mutually good fit.
