The Mayor of Seattle is the mayor of the city of Seattle in Washington state.
The Mayor of Seattle hired the Ghostbusters when the appearances of Dante Barnes throughout the city led to strange fires. The Mayor's anger of the amount of damage accrued during the bust was sublimated by the publicity garnered. Two networks angled for exclusive location rights to shoot a miniseries about Dante and "Haunted Seattle" tour bookings skyrocketed. The Mayor gave the Ghostbusters a choice between having the restitution for the damaged trees deducted from their payment or to be sent a bill. Peter Venkman didn't take too kindly to the charge and threw one the Mayor's glasses into a wall. He advised Egon Spengler they were going to price gouge the Mayor the next time they were called in on a case.
- The Mayor is visually based on Norman Rice, Mayor of Seattle from 1989 to 1997.
