I am running for Lt. Governor because its critical we have state leaders with the experience, competence and civility to guide our government on the path to a more prosperous future for all during these unprecedented times. As your next Lt. Governor, I will fight for progressive policies just as I have done all my life, in the state legislature as Majority Leader, and in Congress fighting to hold President Trump accountable. I will fight for a strong public education system. I am married to a retired middle school teacher and principal, and am myself a former business agent for a union representing classified public school employees. I am a passionate believer in strong public schools and I am proud of the fact that I am the only candidate in
this race NOT to take money from private charter schools. I will fight for an open and transparent government just as I did when I co-founded TVW. I will fight for a clean Puget Sound just as I have done in Congress when I established the first ever Puget Sound Recovery Caucus and when I sponsored the Save Our Sound legislation to restore the health of the Puget Sound. I will fight for meaningful policies to combat climate change just as I did when I was the first member of the congressional delegation to sign I-1631 and when I became one of the first members of Congress to co-sponsor HR 763, the carbon fee and dividend bill. This is why I have earned a lifetime score of 96% from the League of Conservation Voters and why I have been endorsed by the Washington Conservation Voters.
I will fight for a more progressive tax system, just as I did when I was in the legislature and led the effort for tax reform. I will fight for increased access to reproductive health just as I have in Congress, which has earned me a 100% voting record from Planned Parenthood. I will fight for all the working families in our state, and the endorsements from the Washington State Labor Council, Boeing Machinists (IAM 751), and State and Federal Employees (AFSCME 28) show they trust me to put the needs of their members over corporate interests. We are in rough waters. During this crisis, what Olympia needs are more experienced and steady leaders – leaders who will stay true to our Democratic values. With your support, I will be that leader.
Representative Mike Pellicciotti (pelly-chotty) is leading the charge to make government more transparent and beneficial to the people of Washington, not corporate special interests. He wants to do the same as your next Treasurer.
Mike is one of the only Washington State elected officials who has never accepted campaign donations from corporations.
First elected to the House of Representatives in 2016 after personally knocking on over 15,000 doors to beat a Republican incumbent, Mike successfully introduced and passed into law legislation to get “dark money” out of politics, to modernize and increase financial penalties for corporate crime, and require greater campaign finance transparency by political action committees. He has championed open government laws and was the first legislator to call on the legislature to fully provide legislators’ public records, while also voluntarily disclosing his own.
Mike began his public service in 2005 as a King County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney, where he prosecuted domestic violence and sex trafficking. Later as an Assistant Attorney General, Mike managed statewide efforts to protect seniors and to combat complex financial health care fraud, returning over $30 million dollars to taxpayers. As State Representative, he has led bills to ensure that Sound Transit taxpayers only pay taxes on the accurate value of their property.

McCarthy began her career in public service as an elected school board director for the Tacoma School District, a position she held from 1987-1999. She then became the deputy auditor for Pierce County in 1999. She was then elected and served as county auditor in 2002 and 2006. She served from 2003-2008. Contrary to what the title suggests, the Pierce County auditor doesn't carry out financial audits. Rather the auditor oversees elections and licensing.
In 2008, McCarthy was then elected to serve two terms as Pierce County executive, from 2009-2017. As county executive, McCarthy was tasked with running the daily operations of the county, including overseeing a $900 million budget and managing 3,000 employees. She was ineligible for a third term as county executive due to term limits.

Commissioner of Public Lands
Hilary Franz is relentless in her desire to create bold, transformational change in Washington. Crosscut summed it up best: “She has the energy of a venti-fueled dynamo and a mind that works at a wildfire pace.” Hilary brings a passion for the lands and waters of Washington and a compassion for all of our communities. And she has a leadership style that is rare: she brings people together across long-standing divisions to accomplish great things for not just a few, but for all.
Elected Commissioner of Public Lands in 2016, Hilary leads the Department of Natural Resources, an agency that manages 6 million acres of public lands — from coastal waters and forests to commercial properties and farmland. This portfolio generates $325M each year for our public schools and basic county services throughout our state. Through Hilary’s leadership, the agency is developing a strategy for increasing revenue for our schools and communities through innovative strategic investments that protect working forests and farms in our rural areas and increase housing and economic opportunities in our cities.
