Peggy Hubbard is a veteran, former police officer, and retired IRS analyst, and Harley enthusiast. She speaks out for what she believes in, keeps her word, and does what is right, even when it isn’t easy.
Peggy was born a fighter in a St. Louis ghetto in 1964 and raised by a single mother with the help of her maternal grandparents, who made hard work and family values the centerpiece of her childhood.
In 1984, Peggy enlisted in the United States Navy. She attended boot camp at NAS in Orlando, Florida and went on to serve on board various ships including USS Samuel Gompers AD 37, USS Yosemite AD 19, Naval Air Station (NAS) Alameda, NAS Vallejo, NAS Mare Island, and in the Navy Reserve.
While serving in the Navy, Peggy became pregnant out of wedlock. People who she thought were her friends, tried to convince her to have an abortion to save her military career. Peggy went to a Planned Parenthood clinic to have the procedure, but after hearing her baby’s heartbeat and seeing an ultrasound for the first time, Peggy decided against the abortion. She couldn’t make her unborn daughter pay the price for her actions.
Peggy had to physically resist and fight off the Planned Parenthood employees who tried to hold her down and force her to go through with the procedure. Since that day, Peggy has been a strong advocate for life.
Peggy’s first marriage ended in divorce, after years of abuse, she became a single mother to her two small children. Strongly committed to personal responsibility
and living life on her terms, free of government dependency, Peggy refused to live on welfare and chose to work three jobs to support her young children.
In 1991, Peggy met Officer Charles Hubbard of the Saint Louis Police Department, and in 1994 they were married, forming a blended family with six children. Peggy went to work as a Court Officer for the Saint Louis County Police Department and was later hired by the Internal Revenue Service where she worked for 15 years.
Peggy’s time at the IRS was eye-opening. She witnessed the inefficiency, waste, fraud, and abuse that infests massive government bureaucracies.
While still working at the IRS, Peggy and Charles were putting their children through college, Peggy felt a calling to serve her community once more and became a police officer serving in Southern Illinois’ most impoverished communities.
In 2016, Peggy’s husband was forced to retire after being shot twice in the line of duty.
Peggy was a supporter of Donald Trump in the Republican primary. She believes in America and understands we need more representatives who are not politicians, who are willing to put the American people and our freedoms first.
People who will get serious about renegotiating lousy trade deals, fight for our military and veterans, support law enforcement, support criminal justice reform, support the American people, build up our economy and most impoverished areas, and stand up to the politically correct outrage mobs.
Like many Illinoisans, Peggy has watched for decades as forgotten communities have been abused and neglected by elected representatives like Senator Dick Durbin. She’s had enough.
Peggy’s entrance into politics is indicative of her lifelong battle for truth, justice, and a mission to bring a hopeful future to the forgotten communities in Illinois. She takes pride being called an American Patriot and wears the scars made by left-wing radicals as a badge of honor. Peggy was born a fighter, and she remains one today.
