Sarah Reyneveld is an Assistant Attorney General, mom, union member, transit rider, and 25-year neighbor in the 4th Council District. A longtime public servant, Sarah has dedicated her career to working in the community to develop and implement solutions to some of our most pressing challenges. She is the only candidate with 20-years of experience in the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government helping to craft policy and budgetary solutions to deliver results.

Currently, Sarah serves as Managing Assistant Attorney General where she leads a team overseeing cases to protect our environment and public health. An Assistant Attorney General for over ten years, Sarah has fought for the people of Washington State helping to ensure that workers get the wages and benefits they are entitled to and that companies who violate the law are held accountable. Prior to serving as an Assistant Attorney General, Sarah worked in the Governor’s office and as legislative assistant in the Washington State Senate.

In 2016, the King County Council appointed Sarah to be County Councilmember Jeanne Kohl-Welles’s representative to the King County Women’s Advisory Board.  In that capacity, Sarah partnered with communities across the County to develop and implement recommendations to secure investments in behavioral health, affordable housing, child care for working families, and expand services for survivors of gender-based violence.

Sarah is running to bring experienced leadership and to do the hard work of advancing real solutions to get the results we need and deserve. She believes that the best public policy centers the community and ensures that people with lived experience who are closest to the issues drive the solutions.  As a community advocate and admitted policy wonk, Sarah has worked with communities across King County and Washington State to tackle the opioid epidemic, invest in behavioral health, housing, quality child care, and public education, expand access to public transit, and protect our environment.

Sarah is a graduate of Smith College, the University of Washington School of Law, and the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance where she served as a lecturer on Administrative Law for Public Managers. Sarah worked her way through law school and graduate school as the President and Vice President of the Graduate and Professional Student Senate where she advocated for affordable and accessible higher education, child care, and transit and was a member of UAW-4121.  A proud executive board member of her current union AWAAG-AFSCME Local 5297, Sarah and her colleagues advocated for legislation that allowed Assistant Attorneys General to unionize, and helped organize their union. A longtime Democratic leader, and environmental and transit advocate, Sarah served as Chair of the 36th District Democrats, Vice Chair of Washington Conservation Action (formerly Washington Conservation Voters) Board and on the Advisory Committee of the King Conservation District.
