JAMESTOWN S’KLALLAM TRIBAL COUNCIL ENDORSES SUZANNE HAYDEN IN RUN FOR CLALLAM COUNTY DISTRICT COURT I JUDGE POSITION

On August 6, 2018, the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Council met and approved endorsing Suzanne Hayden for Clallam County District Court I Judge.  The Council approved a financial contribution to her campaign.

The Council met with Ms. Hayden on July 24, in what was supposed to be a 10-15 minute presentation.  Instead, the Council was interested enough to question Ms. Hayden on her background in Lower Elwha Tribal Court for the next 50 minutes.  Ms. Hayden has familiarity with Tribal Codes and Tribal Jurisdiction.  While in District Court I, she was able to get cases dismissed based on lack of State jurisdiction in certain tribal cases.  She would also like to direct District Court tribal defendants to services offered within the tribe regarding treatment and education opportunities.

The Jamestown S’Klallam Tribal Council congratulates Suzanne Hayden on attainment of this prestigious endorsement.  Ms. Hayden is very honored.
