Edmonds City Council general election debate: Janelle Cass and Will Chen

General election candidates for Edmonds City Council Position 2 meet in an Oct. 9, 2021 virtual debate sponsored by My Edmonds News. Candidates are Janelle Cass and Will Chen.

You can read a written summary of the debate responses here.

  1. Listening to Will, he’s never off topic because he doesn’t actually talk about anything specifically. He could write a best selling Hallmark Card good for every occasion. The “I have More Friends Than You Do” collection. We need diverse backgrounds, win-win situations, bring people to the table, listen to people, get them all patrolling the streets in a Citizen’s Patrol, with some whistles. I’d vote for Councilman Distelhorst [who is a very nice person and explicit in what his agenda is] given the choice after listening to this debate. Cass is great, but I’m surprised anyone normal would want this job.

  2. To be honest, I have had both candidates’ signs in my front yard. And I have spoken with both face to face on multiple occasions.

    While Mr. Chen seems to have good intentions, my interaction with him left me with me asking him to remove his sign. During our conversations, his position on housing was not clear and at times contradictory. His campaign website doesn’t go into details.

    Ms. Cass, on the other hand, seems to have a more clear idea of where Edmonds should be heading and her position on housing was clear and concise.

    Ms. Cass’ sign is in my yard today and she will be the one I vote for.
