Commissioners send letter to Attorney General regarding judges lawsuit

The County Commissioners are asking Attorney General McKenna to help protect their constitutional role of legislative authority and their protection of the tax payers and to stop the funding the of legal positions that threaten the their legislative authority. Commissioner Herb Welch said the timing might not be the best for McKenna who is running for Governor but enough is enough.
Commissioner Terry Willis said this issue is bigger than Grays Harbor County.
The letter also states that counties spend 70 to 75 percent of their budgets on law and justice and are asking that they are not to be burdened more by the courts and be forced to give the judges whatever they want.
