Head and shoulders photo of Mayor Armondo PavoneI would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the Renton community for trusting me as your new mayor.

We all want Renton to be safe and healthy and have a welcoming atmsphere where people choose to live. I am committed to leading us in that endeavor. Together we have an amazing opportunity to make Renton evolve from a drive-through city to a “drive-to” city.

I decided to run for city council in 2013 and then for mayor in 2019 to continue the great work that has been done over the past decade by former Mayor Denis Law, and to give back to a community that has given so much to me and my family.

I see our future as building a more inclusive, informed city with opportunities for all. Renton is one of the most diverse communities in our region and a trusted, effective and relevant government must rely on partnership with our community to ensure that each voice is heard and respected. 

In order to accomplish our vision of creating a center of opportunity where families and businesses thrive, it will take each one of you, working alongside your city government to tackle the issues we will face in our future. We must create a city where everyone has a safe place to call home. I will be intently focused on public safety, affordable housing and promoting a vibrant economy to accomplish this. We must also boldly and aggressively work to alleviate traffic congestion on city streets that comes with Renton being a hub of vitality in the Puget Sound Region.

I want each of you to know that I am proud of the relationship and partnership that I have built with your city council. As a former councilmember, I have both understanding and respect for the role council plays in ensuring you have a responsive and effective government. We, as elected officials, are all committed to delivering excellent service through innovation. 

Our goal is that you will feel this every time you interact with one of our employees.

It is also my goal to be out and about in the community and connect with you in various ways. To keep informed on the most up-to-date news and information, please also subscribe to my weekly digital newsletter and other city social media channels.

Support Our Small Businesses

“Small businesses are more than numbers; they are the heart and soul of our community. Their owners and employees are our friends and neighbors. These businesses also give life to entrepreneurs and promote innovation, creativity, and competition.

"Buying from a small business means your money stays in Renton and supports your community. Studies show an estimated two-thirds of each dollar spent at a local business stays in the community. In addition, small business owners donate 250% more to local nonprofits and community causes than larger businesses.” - Mayor Armondo Pavone, Nov. 22, 2022

The City of Renton thrives because of our community's diversity and individual thought. Current events in Ukraine remind us we need to be kind and empathetic towards our neighbors and each other as we enter uncharted times.

For those wanting to help and support, we will share ways after they are vetted and authenticated through members of our Ukrainian Community.
