State AG says Grays Harbor Commissioners need a new list for County Prosecutor

A new list of three, but they can’t pick their own, that’s the answer for Grays Harbor County Commissioners from the state Attorney General’s office in the ongoing debate to fill the vacant County Prosecutor position.
A letter from the AG’s office yesterday said that if the commissioners chose one of the three names provided by the Democratic party – which they did when they chose Vini Samuel, and that person declines – which she did in November, then the position is again vacated and the commissioners go back to the Democratic party for a new list of three candidates.
The opinion also noted that the county commissioners can not choose someone on their own, or make up another list, an option explored by commissioner Frank Gordon last month, when the commissioners demanded a second list under the threat of making their own.
