“John Peschong has a proven track record when it comes to protecting the region’s taxpayers,” said Higginbotham. “As our supervisor, I know that he will be committed to offering common-sense solutions that create jobs and spur economic growth. He has my full support.”

Peschong is a Republican strategist and partner at Meridian Pacific, a political consulting firm. He has previously contributed conservative political columns to The Tribune. He lives in Templeton with his wife, Anna, and their two children.

First District Supervisor includes the City of Paso Robles as well as the communities of San Miguel, Templeton, Heritage Ranch, Shandon, Oak Shores, and Adelaida.
