Peter Goldmark

From dKosopedia

Peter Goldmark is a Democrat and farmer who ran for Congress in the 5th District, but he lost to the incumbent, see Washington U.S. House election, 2006.



Goldmark is a populist rural Western Democrat whose policy focus is on making international trade in agriculture and other industries "fair trade, not free trade." His policy perspective is that of the domestic agricultural producer.


The son of a prominent rancher and longtime state representative, Goldmark has a life-long involvement with wheat ranching, science and public service. After receiving his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from UC Berkeley in 1971, Goldmark returned to the family wheat and cattle ranch. He was appointed Director of the Washington State Department of Agriculture in 1993 by Governor Lowry. Goldmark is currently a member of the Washington State University Board of Regents and has served as President of the Board and chairman of the presidential search committee in 1999-2000. He has published papers in national and international scientific journals on plant molecular genetics and currently runs a wheat breeding program that has created highly successful new hardy wheat cultivars.
