Why I Am Running

There are multiple reasons, and if you read below and then click the “Issues” tab you’ll see several important issues laid out, with my position on each of them clearly outlined in plain English.

However, there’s another, shorter reason… far more important than any policy issue.

I’m to the point—or rather, our District and State are to the point—where I felt like I only had two options…

Either leave California, or stay and fight for what I know is right.

Seriously. We’ve gotten that far off track. I know it, and more important, you know it.

This campaign isn’t built on catchy slogans and sound bites. Right now, what we need in Washington is what the vast majority of the country is asking for, regardless of party affiliation…

Calm, Competent, Common Sense Leadership.

Leadership that’s more interested in doing the right thing—for our district, for our state, for our nation—than in continuing the current “standard” in Washington: doing absolutely nothing except engaging in polarizing partisan politics.

I’m interested in doing the opposite of that. Look at my positions on some of the most important issues facing us, and you’ll see I’m much more concerned with arriving at workable solutions than in simply “beating the other side.”

So please, go through my site and see where I stand. If you feel I represent your beliefs on the majority of these issues, I would very much appreciate your vote, both in the June primary and again during the general election in November. And if you disagree, please make a cogent case for your differing opinion and drop me a line at the contact page—I’m always open to listening to any of my potential constituents.

Thank you,

Rudy Peters

Hello all you California District 15 voters and the rest of California,

"It's time to stand-up for American Core Values" who is talking of such things in this day of
anti-American behavior?

I introduce you to Rudy Peters.  He is the self made independent problem solver we could use in the
US Congress.

I know Rudy is serious because he canceled the rest of this year's auto races so he can focus on his campaign. 
Rudy is new to the world of politics, but not to government bureaucracy.  I believe he will be able to navigate
all the Red Tape to cut some of the waste we are witnessing in our government projects.

What Rudy needs are volunteers and contributions.  His web page has places where you can sign up or contribute.

Jane and I know of nearly 20 friends who have left this state over the last three years. 
Before we have to leave too, let's elect some people who can appreciate what we had and implement policies to
return this state and country to law-abiding and free state and nation we once enjoyed.


Bill Gibson

I support Rudy Peters! He represents common sense values that have been under attack by our current congressman who has and continues to fail us here in the 15th district! Mr Peters is strong on the issues that effect you and i here in this district. We have seen failed leadership from Swalwell for some time. Rudy peters is strong on the issues such as national security, taxes, Traffic,Jobs and neighborhood security. Haven't we had enough democratic liberal failure in calif? Time for us here in the 15th to take a stand.....we can and must do better...and it starts by supporting and voting for Rudy Peters for Congress. When you think about it....He is the only true choice!

John Lahommedieu

As a lifelong resident of southern West Virginia and eastern Kentucky in the heart of the coalfields, I was raised in an environment that strongly reflected the Democratic Party and its values. I'm 65 years old and as a kid I remember houses having pictures on walls of John L. Lewis (labor leader and president of the United Mine Workers), FDR, Jesus Christ and a newcomer, John F. Kennedy. Today this same area overwhelming supports the Republican Party. Why? Because working class folks feel abandoned and neglected by a party that once portrayed itself as representing us and our values. Well-intended social programs that were meant to lift us out of poverty haven't worked for the most part. We have an opioid crisis in Appalachia where many are fighting addiction to substance abuse, which I believe stems from many having a feeling of hopelessness. I am glad for people like Rudy Peters who are willing to tell it like it is. We desperately need representatives like him and not career politicians.
