Biography

Mike Pellicciotti (Pelli-chotty) proudly represents Algona, Auburn, Des Moines, Federal Way, Milton and Pacific in the State House of Representatives.

Mike has served South King County as a prosecutor for over a decade, first as a King County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney holding accountable domestic violence and human trafficking offenders. He next prosecuted elder abuse and government waste, managing the return of over $30 million to taxpayers from corporate healthcare fraud.

As a freshman legislator, Mike is an independent voice committed to government reform, public safety, and serving the needs of South King and North Pierce Counties. Mike fought for replacement and expansion of city cameras in Federal Way crime hot spots, co-sponsored legislation to stop repeat domestic violence offenders, and passed a new law to hold human traffickers accountable and protect children from sexual assault.

Mike believes in restoring faith in government by restricting politicians and high-ranking government officials from the “revolving door” of becoming lobbyists immediately after leaving elected office. He led passage in the House of Representatives of a new law to shine a light on “dark money” in politics to ensure large campaign donations are no longer hidden from the public. Mike strongly opposed the legislative effort to limit its release of legislative public records. He also is fighting against corporate crime by proposing legislation that would increase corporate criminal penalties.

Mike was chair of the Washington Equal Justice Coalition, which advocates for those denied access to justice, including veterans denied benefits. He also has served with the Federal Way Human Services Commission. He led legislation that expanded vocational training for those in between jobs.

The child of educators, Mike attended public schools and focuses on educational and vocational training opportunities in the district. He has a Bachelor’s in business administration, has a Master’s in rural economic development, which he received as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar, and has a Juris Doctor from Gonzaga Law School. He later served on the Board of Regents of Gonzaga University.
