Anthony Murrietta

Age: 50

Schooling: I attended Cerritos Community College and San Mateo Community College while completing an articulation agreement to the University of California, Berkeley. I did not graduate or complete my studies.

How long have you lived in Federal Way: I have been a resident of Federal Way since February of 2008. Prior to that, I lived in Federal Way from the tail end of 1991-1992.

Family members: I am engaged to be married to Susan Brock. I have four wonderful adult children, three of which are married. Cyrena is married to Andrew. Jessica is married to Jason. Ian is married to Lauren and Maggie, the youngest, is single.

Hobbies: I golf, do woodwork, garden and both Susan and I enjoy photography.

How long in office: I have not served elected office for the city yet. I have been elected to the Teamsters Union, both at Locals 174 and 763. As an officer, I perform duties similar to that of a council member. We operate under parliamentary procedure and serve as part of the legislative branch to our organization.

Relevant commissions/offices held: I am serving Federal Way on the Parks Commission and the Planning Commission.

What are the top 3 items you want the constituents of Federal Way to know about you? The three things I want people to know about me are: I will work diligently to serve the citizens of Federal Way.

I am honest and answer all questions truthfully. I don’t always have answers to questions, but when I don’t, I find out the answer and respond to the person asking within the timeline I promised to get back to him/her.

I am not a career politician. I am running for City Council to take advantage of all of the knowledge I have accumulated over the years representing public employees and to take advantage of the professional connections I have made with other municipalities throughout the Puget Sound region.

Federal Way has so much to offer. We have beautiful parks, a world-class diving and swim center, camping, trails and miles of pristine waterfront. We are situated on Interstate 5 between the Ports of Tacoma and Seattle with easy access to SeaTac Airport. Federal Way is a prime location to do business, whether it is distribution, manufacturing, health care or intellectual property. Let’s show the world why they should be operating the Federal Way!

Thank you for the opportunity to advocate for you.
