Councilmember Rasmussen’s statement on Grace Crunican’s resignation
Seattle City Council thanks Crunican for eight years of service

SEATTLE – Today Councilmember Tom Rasmussen released a statement on Seattle Department of Transportation Director, Grace Crunican’s resignation:

“Today I received word from Grace Crunican that she will be leaving her position as Director of the Department of Transportation. On behalf of the Transportation Committee and the Seattle City Council, I would like to thank Grace for her leadership as director of one of the largest and important City Departments.

“Grace has faced incredible demands and has served the city well in improving both its transportation needs while working to meet our environmental goals. Her leadership on the Bridging the Gap projects and improving pedestrian and bicycle safety are among her many accomplishments.

“I look forward to leading a rigorous council confirmation process of the person who will be nominated by Mayor-elect McGinn. We have many critical projects underway and cannot miss a beat in the meantime. I am pleased that she will continue until a new director is confirmed.”

Seattle City Council meetings are cablecast live on Seattle Channel 21 and Webcast live on the City Council’s website at Copies of legislation, archives of previous meetings, and news releases are available on Follow the Council on Twitter at and on Facebook at Seattle City Council.
