No list yet for Clallam prosecutor replacement
November 21st, 2013 - 5:22am
(Port Angeles) – It may be awhile longer before we find out the list of potential candidates to be the interim prosecutor for Clallam County. Republicans have decided to take resumes and interview attorneys that might want to be on the list.
Last week, longtime prosecutor Deb Kelly announced she would step down at the end of the year. Since it is a partisan position, the party that currently holds the office gets to select the list of candidates to fill the term. Clallam County commissioners will pick from the list.
The selection must happen within 60 days of Kelly's resignation. Kelly has urged her chief deputy prosecutor, Mark Nichols, be named the interim prosecutor. The seat will go before voters next fall.
