The Carpinteria City Council honored Peter Brown this week for his 36 years of excellent service to the City of Carpinteria. Peter retired in 2021 from the firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck and from the role of Principal Contract City Attorney for the City of Carpinteria. During his long tenure, he shepherded the City through numerous varied and complex legal matters.
Peter started with the City as a Deputy City Attorney in 1985 and was promoted to Senior Deputy City Attorney in 1990 and Principal Contact Attorney in 1992. His tenure is most notable for how he went about the work, conducting himself with the utmost integrity and professionalism, earning the trust and confidence of City Council and staff members, and the Carpinteria community. At the March 14 City Council meeting, members of the current City Council and City staff, several former Carpinteria mayors, and numerous former associates of Peter’s lauded him for his many years of hard work, skill, compassion and dedication to the City.
