Meet Edmonds City Councilmember Jenna Nand at ‘Cupcakes with the Candidate’ event Sept. 30

Edmonds City Councilmember Jenna Nand

Meet Edmonds City Councilmember Jenna Nand, ask questions and hear her plans for Edmonds during a “Cupcakes with the Candidate” event at 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept 30 at Edmonds City Park Shelter 2, 600 3rd Ave. S.

Nand, who was appointed to fill the Edmonds City Council Position 7 seat in October 2022, is running unopposed for election this November,

This is a family-friendly event, with Tansy the Goat and Raj the Bunny on hand to meet the youngest community members. Speakers will include Edmonds City Councilmember Dave Teitzel and local animal rights activist Sabrina Connaughton.

RSVP here so organizers know how many cupcakes to order.

  1. I can understand Dave Teitzel’s attendance at the event but what is the significance of an animal rights activist to Council Position 7 and the issues affecting the City of Edmonds?

  2. What’s wrong with being an animal rights activist ?
    And why would being an animal rights supporter preclude that individual from being a good Council person?
    My experience working with Ms. Nand , and watching her work and votes on Council, has led me to be thankful that she is on the City Council.
    She is very thoughtful, smart and reasonable; not to mention being kind and fun
    She spends a lot of extra time engaging with the public and being involved with community events.
    She seeks to learn about city issues, understand the complexites, and make reasonable votes as a member of Council.
    I’m glad she’s willing to take on a full term on our City Council . It’s not an easy job and we should all be grateful that she’s there.
    Thank you.

    1. Dear. Mr. Phipps,

      You have misunderstood my comment/question. I was not referencing Ms. Nand. The article above references another speaker as a “local animal rights activist”. So my question is what does this animal activist have to share with us about the myriad issues affecting the citizens of Edmonds. She certainly may have other talents to share as it relates to Edmonds but they are not referenced in the article.

    2. Thank you, Bill, it is a pleasure to work with you on Tree Board!

      In addition to being an animal rescuer, Sabrina is my friend, a resident of Esperance, and a taxpayer for this area. I don’t know why anyone would question her participation in my event. Candidates often ask their friends and colleagues to speak at their campaign events.

  3. Jenna, I’m so grateful that you have sweet incentive ( cupcakes, goats, rabbit) to draw younger members with young children, who don’t always have the resources to hire a babysitter. Thank you for your “out of the box thinking” which, I’m sure will serve you well on the city council. I look forward to meeting you (unfortunately not at this event)

    1. Thank you, Barbara, I really appreciate your kind words, and I agree, we have to make it easier for people of all ages and backgrounds to participate in local politics! I hope I get to meet you soon, as well!

  4. I like cupcakes (and animals) and am hoping to make it to this event tomorrow afternoon (esp. since it is very close to where I live). Thank you Ms. Nand!
