Together We Can. Whether it’s building more recreational centers and sports facilities for our seniors and youth, working to improve transportation modes for South King County commuters or supporting public safety in our neighborhoods, Pete von Reichbauer is listening to, and fighting for, us.


Pete served on the founding boards of St. Francis Hospital and the Auburn/Federal Way Boys and Girls Club, and has been honored by FUSION (which provides transitional housing for families) as well as the Korean community and the Auburn Food Bank, for his commitment to helping others.  Recognizing the unspoken needs that exist in our community, he has supported mental health programs for English and non-English speaking residents, and started a program to donate retired King County vans to non-profits so they can transport people who need services. 


From preserving the Hylebos Waterway and Bingaman Pond, to reopening Redondo Road and providing our South King County youth with softball and baseball fields, Pete has worked tirelessly to improve our community.  Instrumental in siting the Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center and sustaining it as a world class facility for daily swimmers as well as NCAA athletes, Pete has also worked to improve the ways we commute by supporting the Sounder train service in Auburn and light rail in Federal Way.

The Seattle/King County Municipal League selected Pete as the Public Official of the Year because of his leadership in making government more responsive.  In addition, Pete has been endorsed by firefighters (IAFF Local 2024), labor, and job-producing businesses across King County.  

Because of his record of working to solve problems, Pete has been endorsed by the mayors of Algona, Auburn, Covington, Des Moines, Federal Way, Kent, Maple Valley, Renton and Pacific as well as former County Executive Ron Sims.

We need government to go back to being servants of the people.  The words career and politician should never go hand in hand, but unfortunately it is now all too common, continually reinforced by greed and need to excessively control.

King County has become an extremely oppressive entity over its citizens, and it needs to stop.  As residents, workers and business owners of this county, we should feel respected, supported, encouraged and appreciated, but based on how this county is run, we are at the complete opposite side of where we should be.  I want to do my part to get us back to where we need to be.

I have lived in King County since 1989, growing up in a rural unincorporated area, where we developed an appreciation for the outdoors and rural life.  Prior to becoming a business owner, I had worked largely in customer service positions.  During my customer service years, I became a lead customer service agent where I developed and learned valuable leadership skills, and where I also became a Union steward for a local union lodge.

As a small business owner and resident located in unincorporated King County, I personally know all too well the unreasonable and ever progressing struggles of what it is like to live in the rural area, having to fight tooth and nail against the county just to be able to exist.

Our elected leaders do not seem to understand the wants and needs of those that live in the unincorporated areas, or maybe they don’t care.  Either way, I need to do my part and be a servant to our residents and try to undo and fix the ever-cascading waterfall of mistakes that continue to come from current King County politicians and policies they have created.
