About Peter Vickery

Peter Vickery has lived in Amherst since 1999. He and his wife, Meg, have three children, all of whom attended the Amherst public schools. Peter has served on Town Meeting before, and is currently first vice-president of the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce.

To ensure that Amherst remains a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can make a home and earn a living, Peter would like to see a broader tax base, with more jobs and more housing. This means encouraging mixed-use development in the downtown and village centers.

Peter is an attorney with an office at 27 Pray Street, Amherst. He is a former member of the Governor’s Council (the elected statewide body that can approve or veto the Governor’s choice of judges) and the State Ballot Law Commission, which adjudicates election disputes. He is originally from Wales in the United Kingdom, and became a citizen of the United States in 2002.

“To the voters of Precinct 2, thank you for electing me to Town Meeting. I promise to perform my duties to the best of my abilities, and to be diligent, accessible, and responsive.”
