Prior to joining the Rasmussen office, Tobias served as a legislative assistant for Councilmember Tim Burgess for three years.

Evan Clifthorne

Evan Clifthorne

Evan manages a wide range of policy and constituent issues for Councilmember Rasmussen, bringing experience from his diverse background in communication, community outreach, and public policy.

A graduate of Western Washington University, as well as Washington's world-class community college system, Evan began his career far from his native Pacific Northwest home as an education technology specialist in the U.S. Virgin Islands, where he worked to improve the use of technology in the classroom.

In Washington, DC Evan pursued a passion for advocacy that was initially fostered through his involvement in a variety of student organizations and local campaigns.  As the Outreach Director at a non-profit run by the spouses of Arab Ambassadors to the United States, he worked on domestic and international efforts to raise awareness of, and generate resources for, specific cultural and policy issues.

Returning to Seattle, Evan has worked as an aide to state legislators in the Senate and House, and has worked independently as a communications and advocacy consultant.  Evan seeks out adventure during every season of the year, and you will often find him in sun, rain, and snow exploring the state with his two equally adventurous husky-mix pups.

Dayo Anderson

Dayana "Dayo" Anderson is a Washington State native, having grown up around policy makers in Olympia and attending college in Bellingham at Western Washington University. With a Bachelor of Arts, Dayo brings a creative background and experience in various administrative capacities both within and without the city to Councilmember Rasmussen's Office. Prior to working in the Rasmussen Office, Dayo worked for the Legislative Department's Operations team supporting all of the council offices in various capacities after spending many years in the corporate world as an executive assistant. She brings a background in writing, event planning, archival and organizational prowess, social media management, press relations, and volunteer work. She is an avid participant in Seattle's Vibrant Theater scene and recently closed the doors on a theater company she founded and ran for 5 years. Her interest in political theater took her to Bosnia to utilize theatrical techniques for social change to help war crimes victims heal and develop new skills to interact with their local governments and communities.

When not in the office, Dayo can often be spotted reading all types of books, attending various concerts and plays throughout the city, or spending time with her well-loved pets.
