About the panel discussion:
The Clallam Progressive Coalition sponsored a free public panel discussion, “Clallam County Justice: A Panel Discussion,” on Saturday July 14, 2018 in at the Port Angeles Public Library’s Carver Room.
Residents heard from local candidates for sheriff, prosecuting attorney and district court judge within a larger discussion of the criminal justice challenges facing the community.
The panel was moderated by Assistant Attorney General Tim Davis.
The format gave each participant a chance to speak for five minutes on their experiences and offer their perspective on what they see as the major challenges facing the justice system in Clallam County and possible approaches to take.
There was then an opportunity for audience members to ask questions of the entire panel.
The Clallam Progressive Coalition is a political action group dedicated to a platform of economic, social and environmental matters that ensures the health, rights and well-being of our community. They recently hosted a “Women in Politics” discussion; group representatives said they hope that this panel will be the first of many conversations.
