I don't know if you could tell a difference, but last week the Q Morning Show cutouts were essentially running the city.

We job shadowed Val Sanborn who works in payroll at City Hall  and got an automatic in to some really cool experiences. First of all, Lori received a very warm welcome by Mayor (and hair twin?) Ethan Strimling.

We started off our stellar week with the obvious City Hall selfie.

We weighed in on important matters at a meeting with the mayor, in which Lori had some questions, I was supportive as ever, and Jeff was sufficiently skeptical...

We even piled on for a ride on the mayor's famous orange scooter!

Thank you, City of Portland officials, for inviting us into your lives for the week! I hope we were sufficiently distracting during our City Hall stint.

On that note, off I ride into the orange sunset on the mayor's orange scooter. Jeff and Lori have their own cars, they'll make do.
