After serving as an officer in the United States Air Force for 20 years, it would be safe to say at this point, that Nevada resident Sam Peters is the sole Republican District 4 Congressional candidate who has earned a Bronze Star.
Late last month, Peters, who is married and has three children, spoke to the Pahrump Valley Times about his candidacy and why he wants fellow Nevadans to support his run for the congressional seat.
First and foremost, he touted his accomplishments and business experience since moving to the Silver State roughly four years ago.
Prior to that, Peters, a staunch supporter of education, earned his bachelor’s degree in criminal justice administration with honors.
He graduated magna cum laude, and finished his master of science in administration, with a focus on law, from Central Michigan University with a perfect 4.0 GPA.
He continued his education through a graduate-level certificate program in organizational finance from the University of Maryland University College, headquartered in Adelphi, Maryland.
Las Vegas business owner
At present, Peters owns two Peters Family Insurance businesses in Clark County.
“When I retired from the Air Force, I became a business owner in the Las Vegas area,” he said. “I’ve grown my businesses 350 percent in four years. It’s all about risk management, building relationships and taking care of people. I am married and have three kids. We are truly vested in the area.”
