Armondo Pavone is a true team player | LETTER

During the past four years, Armondo Pavone has faithfully represented the citizens of Renton during his first-term on council and deserves to be re-elected for a second term.

Standing in the spotlight and taking credit for legislative accomplishments is not Armondo’s style. He is action oriented and focused on getting results, not receiving recognition. He rolls up his sleeves and works hard to make sure the job gets done.

Armondo is a true team player who has worked collaboratively with the mayor, his colleagues on council, and city staff to continue to make Renton a better place for all. Having earned the respect of his fellow council members, Armondo was chosen by his peers to serve as council president this year.

Our region is growing and changing, and many challenges and opportunities lie ahead for Renton over the next four years. Armondo is prepared to face these challenges head on and has the experience needed to make sure Renton is strongly positioned for success in the years to come.

I have been honored to work side-by-side with Armondo during my first two years on council and look forward to the opportunity to continue to work together to keep Renton moving forward. Please join me in casting your vote to re-elect Armondo Pavone to Renton City Council Position No. 2 on Nov. 7.
