EDMONDS — Edmonds City Councilwoman Diane Buckshnis was gardening Aug. 21 when something caught her attention.
Someone wrote the word “bitch” in bright-green letters on the window of her husband’s Jeep.
“It is unfortunate that folks who may have a disagreement or problem with my views over something can’t either stop by and ring the doorbell or call,” she said.
She has filed a police report at the police chief’s suggestion.
The slur on the Jeep’s window wasn’t the first time someone tried to send a crude message to Buckshnis. The councilwoman said she found dog feces in her turnaround after the City Council repealed the cat containment law, and again a week later by the gate where Buckshnis exits her yard.
The councilwoman said she wasn’t deterred by the incident.
“If someone is this passionate about my issues, I welcome them to bring them up personally with me,” she said. “My door is open and you obviously know where I live.”
