And Council Member Rasmussen's reelection campaign isn't tapping city resources by having the Seattle City Council media team announce his four stops on a "listening tour."

"I’m looking forward to visiting all areas of our City to speak with residents about their concerns and help answer their questions,” said Rasmussen in a statement sent from City Hall that was most certainly not part of his reelection campaign. “I’d like to hear people’s thoughts regarding transportation issues, as well as other topics relevant to Seattleites,” he continued, most certainly not campaigning.

Rasmussen's regular-course-of-city-business-that-just-happens-to-be-in-an-election year schedule is after the jump.
