He was a restaurateur for many years until he sold his business and decided to get serious about serving his community in a different capacity. Pete was elected to the Alaska State of House of Representatives for two terms. Yet it was his involvement in the Nunaka City Little League and the Northeast Community Council Board of Directors that most encouraged Pete to run for Assembly.
