State Funding For The Construction Industry:
A Conversation with Washington State Treasurer Mike Pellicciotti
Tuesday, February 13th | 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM |Virtual
Join us as we welcome Washington State Treasurer Mike Pellicciotti to speak to Puget Sound CFMA on state funding related to the construction industry. Treasurer Pellicciotti leads the important work of safeguarding the state’s finances – transactions that totaled more than $350 billion in the previous fiscal year. He authorizes the sale of legislatively mandated debt used to maintain the state’s transportation system, provides financing opportunities for local districts at the lowest possible interest rates, and his office manages investments for over 530 local governments through the Local Government Investment Pool. There will be a Q&A to follow the presentation.
Mike Pellicciotti (Pelleh-chee-otti) was elected Washington’s 24th State Treasurer in 2020.
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.
Before 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.
He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, and he received his Master’s in Rural Development as a United States Fulbright Scholar, where he studied economic development. His Juris Doctor is from Gonzaga University and is a lifelong fan of Gonzaga Basketball
