Election night 2021 photo gallery

Election night photos showcasing 2021 Edmonds City Council candidates.

  1. I specifically asked those wearing masks to drop them for the photos. Sorry for any confusion this might cause. Also many people were eating and drinking at the events.

    1. Virus can’t get cha during a photo, or when eating surf and turf. Let’s just admit that none of us believe this anymore. You all are where I am now. One of us. One of us. Wheebo wobbo. Weebo wobbo.

    2. Thanks for doing that, Larry. I never could understand photos of masked faces in the media~ the risk of spreading virus via photograph is minimal.

  2. I think people are tired of wearing them, for now what’s going on 2 years, especially at events where people’s facial expressions are important to convey language and communication.

    The majority of us are vaccinated and those that are not probably were wearing masks. Why such a push for the vaccine and forcing people to get one if we still have to wear masks. I thought the vaccine was the magic bullet, the Golden Ticket and if you don’t get one you can’t go see a hockey game or travel somewhere or eat out in a restaurant in King County (sarcastically said of course)?

    Frankly I am tried of hearing people say where is your mask or are you vaccinated? It’s very demeaning and frankly none of their business. A mask is a personal choice and if one wants to wear one then they can, just as someone has the right not to wear one. If you have a mask on and are vaccinated then why do you care if someone is not wearing a mask?

    I am glad to see all the smiling faces in these photos instead of masked people. Let’s focus on real issues here and celebrate the winners and losers. They all did a great job and put in their own personal time to try and make our city better. That is what should be recognized here, not if someone is wearing a mask or not.

  3. One thing that I find interesting is that the staff have masks on not the candidates running for political office. Are the political candidates not afraid of Covid-19, and the staff of the business should be afraid and therefore have to wear their masks in the photo?

    1. Probably fear of persecution. Staff and establishments are subject to LNI enforcement of a new WAC (Washington Administrative Code) rule that LNI created using emergency rulemaking procedures, and has repeatedly renewed by claiming conditions have changed, to grant LNI authority during the state of emergency to enforce Governor Inslee’s proclamations in the same way they levy fines or stop work for violation of workplace safety.
