Meet John

John Peschong is a small independent business owner, taxpayer advocate, and proud husband and father.

A third-generation Californian, Peschong’s contributions to the community have had a positive impact on the area’s taxpayers, youth, and hardworking families.

John’s passion for protecting taxpayers plays a major role in both his professional and personal life. He previously served as the President of the Central Coast Taxpayers Association as well as the Lincoln Club of San Luis Obispo County, where he kept watch on local public agencies and made sure they were spending taxpayer dollars efficiently.

A firm believer in youth development, John has served as a member or supporter of the Templeton Education Foundation, the Paso Robles Children’s Museum, and the local 4-H. John is committed to ensuring that the children of San Luis Obispo County have the opportunity to grow up in a safe and supportive environment. In addition to his contributions to local youth organizations, John is fiercely committed to preserving the agricultural character of San Luis Obispo County and has remained a major supporter of both the Cattlemen’s Association and the SLO County Farm Bureau.

Recognized for his leadership skills and ability to bring people together, John was appointed to the California Mid-State Fair Board of Directors — where he spent eight years coordinating the annual 12-day fair in Paso Robles. The California Mid-State Fair exists to celebrate the unique character of the Central Coast by educating youth on the important role agriculture plays in the region. The fair attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually.

In addition to his work in the community, Peschong is the founder and co-owner of a small independent business that provides nearly 50 jobs for residents both in the region and throughout the state. He and his business partners work with various groups and organizations to advocate for policies that promote job creation and economic growth.
