What is known about Greg Peterson?

Carrie, the "word on the street" is that Peterson is quite conservative, a Chamber of Commerce candidate like Daniel Benjamin was. Jokingly, someone told me, "He's the Salem Ben Carson."

I've heard that he is all in on the unneeded billion dollar Third Bridge, and favors asking citizens to vote again on the wasteful $82 million police facility bond measure. Meaning, without any changes/improvements to the measure.

So far I haven't spoken with Peterson, or any other of the Ward 6 candidates. And I haven't seen any official position statements from the four candidates. My main reason for preferring Hoy is that Progressive Salem is on board with him, and Progressive Salem does a good job of assessing candidates that they end up endorsing.
