DaCorsi to run for a second term on Auburn City Council


Claude DaCorsi was first elected to the Auburn City Council in 2013.

And he hopes to win re-election this fall.

“There’s a lot of work still to be done, and my current tenure with the council gives me an opportunity to carry on the work and to continue and hopefully make a difference with what we present the city,” said DaCorsi, who recently filed the necessary paperwork with the state Public Disclosure Commission for Position 2.

DaCorsi said his core concerns are homelessness, roads and infrastructure, public safety and economic development.

“What I want to look at as far as roads and infrastructure is how we can live within our means and take the monies we currently have in our budget and shift them around,” DaCorsi said.

As retired director of capital construction for the King County Housing Authority, DaCorsi oversaw a budget of about $25 million a year in his King County job. In 2013, he cited his proven track record as a good steward of money and the care he takes to ensure that the revenue and expenditure sides of the ledger balance.

DaCorsi said many positive things can happen here, even in the current economic climate, but getting there really requires a much closer look at how the revenues and expenditures of the City are taken care of.

He has a bachelor’s degree in public administration and systems management, and an MBA from Seattle University in 2009.

He is a member of the Auburn Lodge of the Sons of Italy. He has been a volunteer chaplain at the State Penitentiary in Walla Walla for five years.

DaCorsi and his wife, Mary, have lived in Auburn for about 11 years. They have three grown children and nine grandchildren.
