My name is Don Peterson, and I'm committed to making your voice heard in City Hall.


Promises made and Promises Kept.


I promised to end the waste of Tax Payer money and to create Transparency and Fiscal Accountability. I believe I have done that.

In 2012 the City of Banning had ZERO in its General Reserve, and today the reserve is over $4 million. Much of the difficulties in the city’s budget were brought on by mismanagement, including a fraudulent billing of $1.8 million to clean an oil spill. However, due to my persistence in causing an investigation of this malfeasance, the City was able to recover over $600,000.

It’s well known that previous City Councils squandered $35 million of Tax Payer money for Façade Grants, Free Rent for City owned buildings, and Free Utilities. Of course, these gifts were only given to selected groups. This practice has also been stopped.

I am the ONLY City Council Member that has EVER filed a complaint with the Riverside County Grand Jury and had it accepted, investigated and a report issued for malfeasance.

There has been positive changes made in City Hall, but there is still much to be done. Help me continue the fight in doing what is right for the people of Banning, and vote for me on November 8th.
