PORT ANGELES — The Clallam Progressive Coalition is sponsoring a free public panel discussion, “Clallam County Justice: A Panel Discussion,” from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday.
The panel discussion will be at the Port Angeles Public Library’s Carver Room, 2210 S. Peabody St.
Residents will have a chance to hear from local candidates for sheriff, prosecuting attorney and district court judge within a larger discussion of the criminal justice challenges facing the community, from arrest to sentencing.
The panel will be moderated by Assistant Attorney General Tim Davis.
The format gives 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 will then be 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.
