Bio: Debbie Peterson is a former teacher who now balances her time between substitute teaching and conducting transportation research.
Peterson, a member of the Smarter Bridge Coalition, spent a couple months researching bus rapid transit for a political action committee called the Economic Transportation Alliance. She previously worked for businessman and Clark County Commissioner candidate David Madore for three months organizing about 700 electronic files about the Interstate-5 Columbia River Crossing project obtained through a public information request.
Before becoming a teacher, Peterson worked as a loan officer and as a financial specialist. She has a bachelor’s degree in biology from Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho and a teaching certificate from Concordia University in Portland.
