Grays Harbor Democrats respond to AG opinion – no new ‘list of exhaustion’

The chair of the Grays Harbor Democrats, and list member himself, George Smylie has replied to the Attorney General’s opinion recently released in an ongoing dispute with the Grays Harbor County Commissioners to fill the county prosecutor seat. The response assumes that the commissioners will formally ask for a new list from the Democratic party to fill the seat, and replies “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. The letter goes on to says that the commissioners “have a list that was created based on the Washington Constitution and the choice to act on it to appoint a Prosecutor.” Referring to the first list provided which featured Deputy Prosecutor Katie Svoboda -who wants the job, as well as Smylie and Vini Samuel – who both want Svoboda to have the job. Missing from the list was commissioner-supported Mike Spencer, who also wanted the job vacated by Stew Menefee last September.
