Pete for Treasurer

from the Pete For Indiana Committee

With a unique background and wealth of experience, Peter “Pete” Buttigieg is interested in running for Indiana State Treasurer to bring new ideas, new energy and a new commitment to working people to the Statehouse.

As Indiana’s next State Treasurer, Pete would work to protect Hoosier taxpayers from risky Wall Street schemes and unscrupulous companies. He would use the office to help create jobs across the state by investing our tax dollars in our businesses and communities. And Pete would work to lower taxes by better managing the office and its investments to ensure the maximum return on our funds.

A resident of his native South Bend, Pete is a businessman with a unique range of experience. As an associate with a top global management consulting firm, he travels the world advising senior business, government, and nonprofit leaders.

He graduated as valedictorian from St. Joseph’s High School and went on to Harvard where he graduated magna cum laude in history and literature. After graduation, he was named a Rhodes Scholar and attended Oxford University, where he studied economics.

Pete is a co-founder of the Democratic Renaissance Project and a Fellow at the Truman National Security Project. He has also worked on Capitol Hill, at NBC in Chicago, and in congressional, gubernatorial, and presidential campaigns. He is a past winner of the John F. Kennedy Library’s “Profiles in Courage” national essay contest, has served as president of Harvard’s Institute of Politics, on the board of the College Democrats and also as an editor at the prestigious Oxford International Review. Pete’s work has appeared on NPR, local television and radio, the International Herald Tribune, the Boston Globe, and the New York Times.

Pete spends his free time in South Bend restoring a historic home he recently purchased in the neighborhood where he grew up, attending Notre Dame football games and relaxing with family and friends.
