(Washington, D.C.)  Congresswoman Cathy McMorris (WA-05) will be joined by local, state and federal community members for a crime and drug enforcement town hall meeting on Thursday, April 13th from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm at Community Colleges of Spokane, Colville Campus – Rendezvous Theatre 985 S. Elm Street Colville, WA 99114.

“One of my top priorities is to keep our communities safe,” said McMorris. “Methamphetamine use and drug related crimes are a serious problem within our communities and I want to bring everyone together, including community members and law enforcement, to fight this problem head on. We all must do our part to reduce crimes in our communities and give our children a safe place to live.”

Children are often innocent victims of meth abuse. When children are taken away from a meth home they cannot bring anything with them – not even a blanket or teddy bear. To address this unique need of children in drug homes, McMorris encourages people to bring a stuffed animal to the town hall to donate to local law enforcement.

Town hall panelists include:

  • Greg Gassett, Assistant Special Agent in Charge, Seattle Field Division, Drug Enforcement Administration
  • Rob McKenna, Washington State Attorney General
  • Craig Thayer, Stevens County Sheriff
  • Mike Kessler, Commander of the Colville Tribal Police Department
  • Dr. John Roll, Assistant Director, Washington Institute for Mental Illness Research and Training at Washington State University
