Welcome to Pateros, I grew up in Pateros and have served as high school coach, fire fighter, EMT, and police officer. I took the oath of office as 31st Mayor of Pateros in January of 2022. My Father, Tom, was the 21st Mayor of Pateros, from 1979 - 1986.
My fondest memories of growing up in Pateros are the hot summers riding my bike around town with my best friend, playing basketball at the tennis courts, and celebrating Pateros at the Apple Pie Jamboree. In the winter I would skate on the Methow, build snow-forts on the football field, or on the coldest days play board games inside with friends. As a family, my wife Nicole and son Kinden call Pateros home and are adding to these great memories. We want our community and visitors to feel at home and peace in Pateros and create great memories with family and friends.
-Mayor, Kelly Hook
