Pete Peterson filed for re-election to the Fishers City Council Dec. 8. As vice president of the Fishers Town Council, Peterson has worked to provide structure to one of Indiana’s fastest growing communities by advocating for a safe and friendly community. 

Peterson represents the Southeast District in Fishers.

“I am truly humbled to have been able to serve Fishers the past few years, and I look forward to continuing what we have started,” he stated. “I am proud of the work I have accomplished for my district as well as the City of Fishers. I have advocated for lower taxes and fiscal responsibility, making Fishers one of the most attractive places for businesses and families in the United States. I’m proud to call Fishers home and look forward to continuing to serve the people of the Southeast District.”

Peterson has helped the Fishers community grow through several projects including the completion and opening of the Amphitheater and Nickel Plate District. Peterson also voted to approve the new intersection at I-69 and 106th Street on which construction will begin next year, making way for more than 300 acres of business development. He worked hard to approve a study for Geist Reservoir that will look at what actions need to be taken in order to preserve and treat one of Fishers’ most precious resources.

Peterson has made infrastructure for Fishers a priority as he voted for several road improvement projects, including additional roundabouts at Geist Road and 106th Street and 106th Street and Cumberland Road. His financial background is an invaluable asset to the Fishers City Council. Peterson understands budgets and how to manage money in a way that has helped keep taxes low in Fishers. This philosophy is conducive for businesses and friendly for residents, allowing positive growth to occur.

Peterson has been a resident of Fishers since 2002. He lives with his wife of 20 years, Robin, and their two children, Carly and Cole. The Petersons attend Harvest Church at Geist Elementary School and spend much of their free time attending their children’s sporting events.
