Stu Rasmussen Death – Cause of Death – On the 18th of November 2021, the news about the passing of Stu Rasmussen was mentioned in a tweet made by Steve Fugett. Rasmussen who was sometimes called name Carla Fong, was an American politician who became the nation’s first openly transgender mayor. He was elected as the mayor of Silverton, Oregon in November 2008.
He was the owner of the Palace Theater in Silverton. Reports disclosed that in the 1990s, Rasmussen was elected twice as mayor of Willamette Valley community, before coming out as transgender. Rasmussen was also three times a member of the city council. According to reports, Rasmussen was born a male, identifies as a man, prefers masculine pronouns, has breast implants, and has a feminine gender expression.
Rasmussen has co-owned Silverton’s 1936 Palace Theater, which shows first-run movies, since 1974. He serviced projectors, sound equipment for Moyer Theaters, Portland, OR. In 1994, Rasmussen ran for a seat in the Oregon House of Representatives as an independent, and a seat in the Oregon State Senate in 1996 as a Democrat but he lost the elections. We extend our condolences.
