Boeing supplier exec ends anti-mosque campaign, mulls run for Mukilteo mayor

An executive with a Boeing robotics supplier who found himself in hot water last week for questioning the construction of a Mukilteo mosque is giving up on his cause but says he is toying with the idea of running for the town's mayor.

Peter Zieve, president of Mukilteo-based Electroimpact, said he is throwing in the towel on his campaign to raise concerns about the mosque and what he says is a link between having a mosque in a community and breeding Islamic radicalization.

''Apparently I have no privacy, and I have no freedom of thought,'' Zieve said Wednesday afternoon.

The negative response that he got via email and in local newspapers ''just completely overwhelmed me,'' he said. ''I didn't anticipate it.''

Zieve sent a bulk mailing of unsigned postcards to residents of Mukilteo, a city of 21,000 about 45 minutes north of Seattle, telling them that a mosque is planned for their town. He didn't put his name on the postcards, but he confirmed to the Puget Sound Business Journal last week that he was the person behind them.

''If you would like to receive notifications about the mosque as information becomes available, send an email to Mukilteostaysafe@gmail.com,'' the card says.

Zieve said there is nothing he can do to stop the mosque project.

''I'd like to think that we would find something in their proposal, but we didn't find anything that we could use to slow it down,'' he said.

The organizers of the Mukilteo mosque construction have submitted a land use development application, said the city's planning manager, Glen Pickus.

The next step for his office is to issue a notice of application, which will kick off a public comment period. That notice probably will go out Friday, Pickus said.

Zieve plans to apologize for the postcard and said he will make his mea culpa to a local leader in the Muslim community.

''I would apologize to him that the postcard thing became so twisted by the paper,'' Zieve said, referring to local media.

The Electroimpact executive said he got emails from people telling him that, as a business owner, he shouldn't have sent the postcards.

''I didn't know I gave up my prerogatives to be a citizen," he said.

A run for Mukilteo's mayor could be his next move. ''Even now I'm contemplating in my mind what would be our next step on this thing,'' he said. ''One of them I've been thinking of is running for mayor."

In the interview last week, Zieve made a connection between mosques and terrorism, saying the husband-and-wife duo that carried out the San Bernardino mass shooting in December went to a mosque ''almost daily.''

When asked on Wednesday why supporters of the Mukilteo mosque were not responding to that concern, Zieve said, ''It's a nation of optimists, and they like to think that a church and a synagogue and a mosque are all exactly the same.''

Zieve said the mosque should publicly certify that it won't breed terrorists.

''I certainly wish they would have a label on the mosque that says, 'Mosque, no radicalization here.' Then I have no objection whatsoever,'' he said.

No money from Electroimpact was used for the postcard mailing, Zieve has said, and the mailing was done out of his home.

Boeing has declined to comment on the situation.
