Representative Mike Pellicciotti (pelly-chotty) is leading the charge to make government work for people, not corporate special interests.
Mike is the only Washington State elected official who has never accepted campaign donations from corporations.
Elected in 2016, Mike successfully led efforts in our state to pass news laws to get “dark money” out of politics. He’s standing up to corporate crime, and he’s introduced legislation to close the lobbyist “revolving door,” so elected officials cannot cash in on public service.
Mike began serving South King County as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in 2005. He has taken on domestic violence batterers and sex traffickers in our neighborhoods, managed statewide efforts to combat healthcare fraud and elder abuse, and returned over $30 million dollars to taxpayers from pharmaceutical and other corporate healthcare fraud. While not in session, Mike continues to serve the public as a prosecutor in the Washington State Attorney General’s Office.
A former United States Fulbright Scholar who studied economic development, Mike understands the importance of creating quality jobs, equitable education opportunities, and a strong economy. While in law school, he was a national leader to improve student loan access for students serving the public and later served on the Board of Regents of Gonzaga University.
A Federal Way homeowner, Mike served on the Federal Way Human Services Commission for three years, supporting local South King County non-profits and providing basic services to our most vulnerable. He has also served as the Chair of the Washington Equal Justice Coalition, advocating for workers' rights, protecting South King County and North Pierce County homeowners from predatory corporate lenders, and ensuring that veterans receive their benefits.
