  1. Gee….a 1% property tax increase proposal…a new Levy…shazaam! Wonder if the property owners got a 1% increase in their pay checks??

    All the money has been spent irresponsibly…now more money is needed to spend irresponsibly…Edmonds govt loves spending other peoples’ money that they don’t have

    Edmonds city govt. never met a tax or a levy they didn’t like!

  2. Mr Williams.
    We haven’t seen you at any council meetings telling the council or the mayor what part of our budget is irresponsible. We would like to hear from you in person. I invite you to come to this evenings council meeting. Where we welcome you to share with us the irresponsible parts of the budget.
    If you don’t participate you have no credibility bitching from the sidelines.

    1. Sometimes people cannot make it to a council mtg. and have every right to express there opinion here and to also e-mail council members. We still live in a democracy and any way you express your opinion to make it heard is ok. as long as it is peaceful! Many of the citizens do not have much trust in govt. anymore and our taxes continue to rise when the middle class does not get a break and wages are stagnate. And some live on a fixed income even in Edmonds.

      1. Change for the Greater Good in Edmonds – District (neighborhood) elections (still have Council & Mayor/and or Manager so ALL neighborhoods are represented equally and an end to special interests – District Council Members for each neighborhood. Follow other cities leads on this including Seattle, San Francisco, etc.

        Or Neighborhood Commission with representatives from each and every neighborhood.

        This is something to think about for our community. I encourage all citizens to read this in today’s Seattle Times. Alex Pedersen, Seattle,


        This would be a huge change and take some doing, but all of the citizens would be represented (by the people, for the people, of the people), and there would be TRUST in our government. There is not trust in this government right now.

        I believe our City Council does a grand job under complicated circumstances………and then throw in a few law suits, and whatever else is going on……This city needs change. Stores and businesses in this city have continued to close in the 5 years I have been here. This can be changed, but I believe the change has to start at the top.

  3. Yet when the city moves to make a change, people object to that as well. We have to find a happy medium as the status quo is one that will not stand. Change is something so many here don’t want yet we need it to have a sustainable economy.

    I will agree that putting words on MEN is not going to get to the city and will encourage anyone to email council@edmondswa.gov to make their words known.
