Peter Peckarsky was born & raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A proud graduate of Washington High School, he received his S.B degrees in Electrical Engineering and Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his law degree from Case Western Reserve University. Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D – Mass.) placed Mr. Peckarsky’s senior thesis in the Congressional Record in support of his opposition to the Anti-Ballistic Missile system.
Peter brings a breadth of legal and national security experience to the race. He’s served as a consultant on strategic nuclear weapons forces and platforms to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations and on intelligence analysis to the Director of Naval Intelligence. His legal work includes providing representation in intellectual property, antitrust, securities fraud, election law, and other matters. He knows what needs to be done so our laws and economy work for all of us – and how to keep special interests from exploiting our system.
His career has also involved the interaction of law with science and technology, including biotechnology, computer hardware and software, electrical circuits and signals, internet communications, internet devices, medical devices, microprocessors, organic chemistry, pharmaceuticals, physics, quantum mechanics, semiconductor design, semiconductor processing, statistics, and telecommunications. Peter knows that curbing the power of Big Tech will be crucial in making sure scientific and technological advances benefit our communities and our national security – not the wealthy and special interests.
Peter also worked as an investigative reporter in Washington and elsewhere, traveling across the country to hold the powerful accountable and asking hard questions of people in power, including President Gerald Ford, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, President Jimmy Carter, and ex-Secretary of the Treasury John Connally. Peter has dug into the inside of America’s institutions, and he’s ready to see to it that our government works for us – not for powerful special interests.
In 2017, Peter ran for Chair of the Democratic National Committee as a champion of voter protection and election security because Peter believes that the Democratic Party must represent the voices of the people and hold the powerful to account. He advocated a vote on the final ballot for Keith Ellison’s bid for DNC Chair.
