Last updated 6/16/2022 at 10:02am
Edmonds Civic Roundtable (ECR) hosts a panel discussion exploring the pros and cons of a strong mayor form of municipal government compared to the pros and cons of a city manager form of municipal government.
Edmonds has a strong mayor form of government.
• Mayor Kyoko Matsumoto Wright from Mountlake Terrace
• Former Mayor Nicola Smith from Lynnwood
• A representative from the Association of Washington Cities
• There will be an opportunity to ask questions following the panelist discussion.
ECR has no position or recommendation regarding one form over the other. However, it says it believes it is healthy for citizens to understand and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these two governmental structures.
The event is 4-5:30 p.m. Monday, June 27, at the Edmonds Waterfront Center, 220 Railroad Ave., second floor, community room B.
The Edmonds Waterfront Center recommends that people attending in-person wear masks.
