Letter: Zieve’s never been convicted domestic violence
Last updated 7/12/2017 at Noon
My name is Maria Zieve, wife to candidate Peter Zieve. My husband and I have been married for 12 years, and during those years we have raised four wonderful children together and three stepchildren whom I love with all my heart.
I have a degree in education; was formerly an elementary school teacher; was a PTA vice president at Columbia Elementary; and currently volunteer at Montessori. I am also a cancer survivor since 2001.
I feel compelled to write this letter to share with you the real Peter Zieve. It truly saddens me to read so many inaccuracies in articles, especially when it involves my marriage and children. I am disappointed that people, for political gossip, have involved themselves in our personal life.
Although there are police records, the letter to the editor on July 5 conveniently failed to mention that there are no convictions and every incident was dismissed (“Zieve’s record bodes poorly for families,” Kim Longmore). To resurrect the past and to involve our children this way will only negatively impact their lives.
Peter is a wonderful father. He is involved in our kids’ lives in spite of his heavy workload as CEO and founder of Electroimpact.
My husband’s commitment to our community’s STEM programs, internship opportunities and monetary donations convey his passion to help others fulfill their true potential.
I thank God every day for the gift of life with all its blessings and challenges. I am positive that my husband, Peter Zieve, is the best candidate for Mukilteo City Council Postion 2.
