Bigfoot? Squirrel? Transformer?
The Snohomish PUD has decided to “get back into the mascot game” and is seeking public input on which of the three concepts should become a public service mascot.
The new PUD mascot will be used at community events such as parades, festivals and fairs and in educational programs on electrical safety and conservation.
PUD staff provided the following outline for the three concepts. (Sorry, they didn’t provide a visual)
Bigfoot: Although traditionally known to be an elusive mountain dweller, Bigfoot (aka Sasquatch) seems to pop up everywhere these days. Bigfoot is a friend of the forest and possesses the strength and agility of a lineman, which makes this creature an interesting potential choice for the mascot.
Squirrel: It’s common knowledge that squirrels and electrical equipment don’t mix. However, it is precisely for this reason that a squirrel could be the perfect ambassador of electrical safety. Loved by children and commonly found in our service territory, the squirrel might just be the furry friend we need for our PUD mascot.
Transformer: While this transformer cannot transform into a different creature, it does transform your energy into usable voltage in your home and business. When it comes to life, the inanimate transformer could help educate children about our power grid and the importance of staying safe around power lines.
