Steinbrueck flyer: Neighborhood voice
Peter Steinbrueck’s first campaign literature for Seattle mayor is being handed out at public appearances and doorbelling this week. The flyer characterizes him as the “Neighborhood Voice … Neighborhood Choice” and highlights his 10 years on the City Council, his architecture career, background in urban planning and his opposition to a new sports arena in Sodo.
Interestingly, the mailer forgoes the usually de rigueur photo of the candidate with an attentive, multi-racial crowd and instead shows Steinbrueck having coffee with a white-haired couple, perhaps suggesting his appeal to the city’s older voters who recognize the Steinbrueck name and associate it with historic preservation and neighborhood advocacy.
The flip side of the flyer shows a smiling Steinbrueck and says, “I’ll stand up for you and the services you deserve, starting right here in your neighbohood.” Steinbrueck’s logo for the campaign is a riff on the iconic Pike Place Market clock with his name and “For Mayor” instead of the Market sign’s red lettering.
