David Peterson Congressional Candidate California District 12
Biography of David Peterson from David Peterson for Congress
I have been working for several years to bring better representation to the constituents of California’s 10th District. Our collective voice has never had the opportunities that today’s technology can finally provide.
“Ask Not what you government can do for you! TELL them what they can do for you!”
The Voters must realize there is more to Civic involvement than listening to a debate or two and then voting. Without Citizen Oversight of Legislaiton our elected officials cannot determine the coarse of action that will meet our needs for spending several trillion dollars on our behalf.
David has worked for 4 years with many Legislation Action Organizations to support their efforts to bring better policies to congress through our Representatives. David applied his expertise for building Accountability systems to the Legislative process and lead the development of www.My-Representative.org, an application designed to support Citizen Oversight and Accountability for our Legislator’s work. Many Organizations bring amazing ideas to congress every day. You too can be part of the Solution to fix Congress. Join us! Support a Legislative Action Organization or create a new one

David Peterson is a Navy ROTC graduate of California Maritime Academy, with honors.
David Peterson’s commission in the U.S. Navy Reserve – Merchant Marine program included a broad set of logistics and national security responsibilities with several overseas tours.
One of the most important responsibilities of the citizens of the United States is to elect representatives to congress who do not send our military service members into action frivolously, carelessly or for economic gain. With great power comes great responsibility. To ensure more qualified representation and authority of our armed services, we should only elect candidates with overseas military experience.
In addition, we should never elect persons with ties to Military Contractors. We’ve done this before, and we need to learn from those mistakes or we will be doomed to repeat them. The secret activities of Big Government can be devastatingly horrific. Only diligent citizen oversight can prevent such abuses.
