“We The People of Clallam County,” a series of listening sessions and candidate forums, comes to the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Community Center, 1033 Old Blyn Highway in Blyn from 6- 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17.

During the first hour, attendees have an opportunity to share their ideas regarding priorities for review by the commission. Depending on the number of people wanting to participate, each person will likely have 1-3 minutes to speak.

Charter Review Commission candidates will have an opportunity to introduce themselves and speak during the second hour.

In the November general election, 15 people are elected to form the Charter Review Commission, with five chosen from each of the three districts in the county. Commissioners review the adequacy and suitably of the county charter.

Amendments approved by the commission go on the November 2020 general election ballot for approval by the voters.
