Councilmember Fraley-Monillas escapes council censure
Last updated 10/14/2021 at 8:12am
As expected, Edmonds City Councilmember Adrienne Fraley-Monillas escaped censure in two 3-3 votes on Tuesday, Oct. 12, with Mayor Nelson abstaining on both, thereby confirming no censure. Nelson could have voted due to the tie. Fraley-Monillas could not vote on her censure.
The censure was for drinking wine during an August council meeting, captured on Zoom, and supposedly flashing a "loser" sign during a meeting, also captured on Zoom.
Fraley-Monillas admitted to taking a sip of wine, but would not heed Councilmember Vivian Olson's insistence on apologizing to the public.
