InfoPeter, a native of the northwest suburbs, is son to Jim and Karen Gutzmer who still reside in the district, in a home built by their own hands when Peter was 13. After graduating from John Hersey High School, Peter attended Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois, where he earned a bachelors degree in music education.
Peter has been a firefighter/paramedic for the past 15 years. He began his career, at the urging of neighbors and his parents, as a volunteer firefighter in Prospect Heights. Pete is now a member of the Elk Grove Village Fire Department.

"Being a firefighter is both mentally and physically challenging. I get a great degree of personal satisfaction from the camaraderie among my fellow firefighters/paramedics and knowing that I am helping people everyday."
-Peter Gutzmer
Peter got his first taste of politics while helping pass a bond referendum to address much needed improvements to equipment in the Prospect Heights Fire Protection District and later during his campaign for Alderman in the same community.

A self described progressive Democrat, Peter has been happily married to his wife Nelly for 10 years. They currently live with their two children, Adelle 8 and Ethan 5, in Hoffman Estates. When Peter isn't putting out fires or responding to emergency calls, he enjoys reading, hunting and fishing with his family in Wisconsin.
