As a newcomer to this process and without a consultant to point out what I did not see, I have
mistakenly used a group photo of the Edmonds Citizens’ Tree Board in campaign advertising to
represent my involvement in our local environmental issues. Some have interpreted this as
politicizing the Board or the members of it.
That was never my intention and I apologize.
The opposite is not only true but a source of pride, our members having views as diverse as the
Edmonds citizens we represent. That diversity of thought, and the respect we have for each
others’ perspectives, is at the core of our Tree Board’s great achievements.
