Grays Harbor Democrats respond to AG opinion – no new ‘list of exhaustion’
Grays Harbor County Commissioners
100 West Broadway, Suite #1
Montesano, WA 98563
Response to 1.15.2014 Request from Commissioners
I have read the Daily World article (1/14/14) and it appears that you may ask for a new list. I have also reviewed your January 15, 2014, correspondence. Please note that on December 10, 2013, I responded by letter to your prior request. In that letter, I affirmed that what had been sent to you previously was a list of exhaustion.
I now have reviewed the Attorney General’s opinion on the prosecutor’s specific questions. It is impractical to provide a new list at this time based on our 10 day notice requirement to our PCOs. The 60 day window would expire before you could act on a new list.
You have a list that was created based on the Washington Constitution and the choice to act on it to appoint a Prosecutor.
Very truly yours,
George H. Smylie
Attorney at Law
