League wholeheartedly condemns violent threats | Letter to the editor

Posted

The League of Women Voters-Jefferson County asks all citizens of Jefferson County and all other civic groups to join us in wholeheartedly condemning threats of violence toward any public servant. 

As many have heard, our Public Health Officer, Dr. Allison Berry, has received threats of bodily harm. We, the LWVJC, strongly condemn any threats of violence and efforts to intimidate city and county officials, be they elected, appointed, or hired. 

Such threats and acts of intimidation have no place in our democracy and are indeed against the law in this state (RCW 9A.76.180). We ask everyone to join us in supporting peaceful, civil dialogue regarding the issues we face as a community.

Angela Gyurko
President, League of Women Voters-Jefferson County
