Learn about PEER’s Pacific Field Office
Our Pacific Field Office serves the five states of California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii. Located near the Port of Oakland, the office expands on the work of our California PEER office which has operated since 1998.
Former long-time PEER Executive Director, Jeff Ruch, operates the Pacific Field Office. Jeff is a second-generation California native who worked for a number of years in California state government, mostly in the State Legislature as counsel to various committees where he drafted literally hundreds of laws on topics ranging from energy conservation to the rights of employed inventors. Jeff also served stints as a deputy district attorney and as an appellate court clerk.
This Field Office is projected to work with federal, state, and local government employees across a broad backdrop of issues, ranging from federal lands to marine conservation to anti-pollution enforcement.
