PORT ANGELES: SEN. CANTWELL TO VISIT SATURDAY

PORT ANGELES — Freshman U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell’s visit Saturday is scheduled to include a four-hour forum on rural health care access and community justice.

“Clallam County has made great strides in implementing some very innovative programs to deal with these huge issues. It is important for the senator to hear how important these programs are to rural Washington,” Commissioner Steve Tharinger said in a news release.

“The forum will accent both success and needs in the community’s efforts to manage these issues.”

Last fall Cantwell, a Mountlake Terrace Democrat, narrowly defeated incumbent Republican Slade Gorton. She recently completed her first 100 days in office.

Her visit to Port Angeles will mark her first official visit to the North Olympic Peninsula. She stopped in Port Townsend and Sequim during the 2000 race.
