It seems too obvious to ignore that Our Mayor, out and out lied..and not just to Pruitt but to all of Edmonds, and lied about Lake Stevens. If this Mayor is not re- called. ...we are an embarrassment too. Then we look at all the other hurried before they(thats us) find out things implemented, discussed with no info to us, the citizens. A fighting council, A questionable council, A person who doesn't seem to understand he too is subject to trouble when he deceives his citizens.
