Chairman Peter S. Goldberg retired in June 2007 from the United States Army as a Colonel after 37 years of active and reserve service. Having been assigned to Alaska twice during that career and fallen in love with The Great Land, there was only one place on earth for his retirement. During his active duty years, he could not actively participate in politics because of the Hatch Act, but he has voted Republican in every election since first eligible in 1966. He was elected Vice-Chair of District 32 in 2008, then chair of the newly formed District 26 in February 2012. He was unanimously elected to be the ARP Vice-Chair on February 9, 2013. He became ARP Chair when the position was vacated on April 8, 2013.
Chairman Goldberg graduated Brooklyn College with a BS in Biology in 1970 and Utah State University with an MS in Wildlife Science in 1977. He and his wife, Marti, have six children and 13 grandchildren. He loves hunting, fishing, flying, SCUBA, cross-country skiing, backpacking, four wheeling, travel, and nature photography.
