WA State Treasurer: Service, Security & Transparency
Service, Security and Transparency: WA State Treasurer Mike Pellicciotti
The business community welcomes State Treasurer Mike Pellicciotti as its keynote speaker at the April membership meeting of the Chamber of Commerce.
The Office of the State Treasurer (OST) is the bank for Washington state government. It is responsible for the safety and security of the state’s money, now and into the future. The office maintains key working relationships with other governments across Washington, and facilitates investment within the state.
As Washington’s chief financial officer, Mike is dedicated to financial transparency, protecting Washington’s financial health, and advancing policies that best serve our state’s working families and retirees.
Prior to becoming Treasurer, he served two terms in the Washington House of Representatives, where he served on House fiscal committees, including the Capital Budget Committee. In the legislature, Mike fought for more equitable and open government, passing laws to get “dark money” out of politics and requiring that the legislature provide its public records.
Before representing the 30th Legislative District of South King and North Pierce Counties, Mike was an assistant attorney general who managed a state unit that combatted economic fraud in Washington.
