San Marcos Mayor Daniel Guerrero recently thanked B.J. Peterson for his 20 years of service to the city as a lineman for the San Marcos Electric Utility and wished him a happy retirement.

Peterson entered the industry in 1973 with the Lower Colorado River Authority and became a City of San Marcos employee in 1991 following the city’s purchase of its electric distribution system.
