Council Meeting Remarks

Stanwood City Hall

During last Thursday’s Council Meeting, the public comment period, which provides constituents the opportunity to weigh in on matters and policies of local significance, was used as a platform for anti-Semitic remarks.

The comments were made remotely via the city’s online participation platform. While the City supports the public’s First Amendment rights, it does not tolerate any form of harassment, online abuse, racism, or discrimination. 

“It is unfortunate that an opportunity designed to provide input on city business was used in a manner contrary to its purpose,” Mayor Sid Roberts said. “The public comments that were made do not reflect the views of the City, and we will continue to condemn acts of hate. I hope that this incident does not dissuade our community from continued participation in local government.”
