No one 'worms their way' onto City Council

I am both puzzled and dismayed by Ron Bussiere's letter in last week's Beacon ("Time to open up council meetings again," May 27) that refers to the "left-wing radicals who have wormed their way" onto the Edmonds City Council.

My thanks to Mike Shaw for pointing out that no one worms their way onto the City Council. There was an election & there will be another one upcoming.

As for the demand by Lynne & Craig Chelius that council meetings resume in person, unless the writers are in direct communication with members of the Council, I doubt they have any way of knowing what plans are on-going to return to in-person events. The current council chambers is a shared space & the building is closed to the public as far as I know. Demanding it happen is not what drives re-openings & there are multiple factors to be considered & procedures to be followed to re-open. Very generous of the Cheliuses to decide meetings could happen at ECA, but again, there are procedures in place for use of any of these spaces & regulations to be adhered to. I am confident the City Council will move ahead as quickly as possible.
