Peter Gilbert, Vice Mayor


Peter served in the US Army Intelligence Corp where he was responsible for all finance operations for the Intelligence Corp Chief of Staff world-wide. He returned to California to start his business career. After several years with Rockwell International, Peter was recruited by Wells Fargo Bank. He retired from the bank as a Senior Vice President. He did several startup ventures including 3 internet companies before moving to Lincoln.

Peter was twice elected to the Foster City council where he served as Mayor and was very active in Bay Area- wide government organizations such as the League of California Cities, Peninsula Division where he served as the President representing 35 plus cities, as chairman of the San Mateo Criminal Justice Council, as a member of the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) executive board and many additional committees and commissions.

After moving to Lincoln, Peter served on the Placer County Grand Jury and for two terms on the 12,000 member Lincoln Hills Board of Directors, three years as President.

Peter would like to concentrate on financial issues to help Lincoln become financially stable and able to fund a proper level of city services. His vision is to provide a level of service where the families and businesses of Lincoln can reach their full potential. This will be a challenge with our current difficult economic conditions in our state. But Peter is prepared to do the work required to find consensus on what is needed to solve these challenges and to work toward completing the goals set to bring solutions for Lincoln.

Like all cities there are a multitude of issues that need attention. But Peter would like to concentrate on these financial challenges as it is the gateway to solving many other important issues before the city.
