Transgender Mayor Elected

Silverton, Ore. has elected Stu Rasmussen, the country’s first openly transgender mayor.

According to this story in the Associated Press, Rasmussen describe himself as “a dude”:

“I am a heterosexual male who appears to be a female,” the 60 year old was quoted as saying.

Silverton is about 45 miles south of Portland.

Because Rasmussen’s appearance was no secret, the campaign was dominated by policy issues.

Now there’s a concept.
