Seattle City Council member Tom Rasmussen was on Capitol Hill Saturday morning to meet with community members, answer questions and, he said, get some things done. The chair of the Council’s transportation committee, Rasmussen also fielded issues at a personal level: One man in attendance wanted to know how best to lobby Sound Transit so his dog can ride their buses. Service dogs are allowed on King County’s Metro, the man said, but it’s official guide dogs only on Sound Transit vehicles.
Rasmussen is also at the start of his campaign to keep his seat on the Council in this November’s election. We talked to one of his challengers, Maurice Classen, in April. UPDATE: Sorry for the error. Rasmussen is facing a challenge from Seattle Central filmmaker Sandy Cioffi. We featured her campaign here.
