On Friday morning, Edmonds city councilmembers and staff gathered to present Councilmember Adrienne Fraley-Monillas with a plaque thanking her for her nearly 12 years of service on the City Council. Fraley-Monillas was sworn into office on Jan. 5, 2010 to serve a four-year term and was re-elected in 2013 and again in 2017. She served three terms as council president and two years as council president pro tem.

  1. interesting that only 2 of the incumbent CMs are present in this photo. Is there a story behind that?

  2. Thank you Councilmember Adrienne Fraley-Monillas for your service over the years. I have had the pleasure of working with her over her time on council and she has always treated me with respect and even listened to some of my ideas about making improvements in the city. When possible, she has included my input to her work.

    I recall when she was first serving on the council, she and another council member sponsored meetings all around town to gather citizen input. Both CMs were new and wanted to know what folks were thinking on issues.

    Thank your Adrienne for your work and the courtesies you showed me over the years.

  3. I echo Darrol’s sentiment. Lately, I found it hard to back many of her initiatives, but belive her support of Highway 99 (along with other CM’s) has ushered in changes.

    I believe AFM has done very good things for Edmonds and our community, and expect that she will stay involved in local initiatives to continue that good work.

  4. I find myself agreeing with the sentiments expressed here by Darrol and George. People in public office should be judged, be evaluated on the totality of their careers, not just their final year or two.
