An update to our Edmonds City Council story from Tuesday night and the concern that the process for providing a second interview to some — but not all — candidates for appointment to the vacant Position 6 was unfair.
City Council President Diane Buckshnis said Wednesday morning that all candidates will now have a chance for a second in-person interview, if they desire.
Here is a copy of Buckshnis’ email, sent to Council staff assistant Jana Spellman, who has been communicating with all candidates:
Due to the last Council Member finally weighing in on the process and recent citizen input, we will allow the remaining seven the option of having a second interview.
Please let those individuals know that they will be afforded 20 minutes and they can answer their questions either via email or come in and answer them in an interview process. But, they will need to notify you so that we can determine how much time will be allotted for the process.
We will then begin the voting process after the last interview.
Thanks and sorry for all the confusion. I had not heard any complaints to date until last night.
